Go Doc Go has now been active in Haiti for almost 3 years. Partnering with the NGO, Hands up for Haiti, we have been able to connect with hospitals and OB/Gyn’s in Cap-Haitien, the largest city on Haiti’s North shore. Working with Justinien Hospital, we have trained residents and midwives in screening using VIA and donated a LEEP and cryotherapy machine for treatments.
One of the Ob/Gyn’s affiliated with this hospital, Dr. Nelly Osias runs the Hands up for Haiti cervical cancer clinic in the town of Limbe. Go Doc Go has been fortunate to work with Dr. Osias on several occasions and see women in remote areas who have never had screenings before.
Our December 2018 trip to Cap-Haitien and Limbe was unfortunately cancelled due to political unrest but we hope to be back in Haiti soon!
