Whitetulip held pediatric mobile clinics at regular intervals in about 10 orphanages in the districts of Croix-des-Bouquets, Delmas, Tabarre and Kenscoff. Our goal was to address the social and biological determinants of health in underserved areas of Haiti. Our group consisted of 3-4 pediatricians and family medicine physicians, a nurse, a respiratory therapist and other volunteers from the United States. WhiteTulip provided acute medical attention, nutritional supplementation through the dispersal of multivitamins, decrease parasite burden through anti-parasite medication administration, and nutrition and hygiene education to parents and children. Over the last three visits, WhiteTulip has cultivated a relationship between local hospitals and local communities.
