Itinerary

Upon arrival in Port Au Prince, your team will transfer to your hotel and meet the team from International Medical Relief that you’ll be working with on this expedition. Gather for a group dinner and team orientation meeting to prepare you for the days ahead.

Wake up early for breakfast at your hotel then depart for clinic! You can expect a high patient load in Haiti. You will work in Port-au-Prince and surrounding communities, including some of the mountain villages. Our teams average more than 1500 patients on each trip and see many tropical diseases including leishmaniasis, leptospirosis, lymphatic filariasis, and many large acute and chronic wounds. We also treat many acute illnesses, infections, and motor vehicle accidents.

Women are particularly at risk in Haiti, with sexually transmitted diseases, personal violence, and pre-eclampsia common. Children are often malnourished, covered with scabies, and infected with parasites. Dental care is one of the greatest needs in our patients. After clinic, you’ll head back to your hotel for dinner and debriefing.

After two full days of clinic, relax today and spend your time freely. Choose from a beach day at a nearby resort or heading downtown for a shopping excursion.

Wake up to breakfast at your hotel and depart for three more days of clinic! Continue serving communities in the surrounding areas of Port Au Prince, Haiti. In the evening, you will depart back to your hotel and have a thorough debrief with your team and team leader.

Breakfast will be provided to you and the team on your last day in Haiti. Consider extending your stay in Haiti! Contact us for more information!

Byenveni nan Ayiti!

Welcome to Haiti! With bright Caribbean spirit, laughter and music on the busy streets, shopkeepers line the sidewalks eager to sell. Haitian art, famous for its brilliant colors depicting Haitian life, flowers, and fields, come to life as you immerse yourself in their equally vibrant culture. Enjoy authentic cuisine that is comparable to the Creole taste palate, but with bold spices unique to Haiti. Take in the seascape as you travel along the shore to remote villages. The Haitian culture is incredible and diverse, with much strength and resolve.

In partnership with International Medical Relief, join us as we travel to Haiti for medical relief and public health education. Although there has been an international effort to lend support since the earthquake, Haiti still remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. This trip is one of the few where we hold clinics in urban areas. Cholera, tuberculosis, malaria, acute illnesses, infectious diseases, and diarrheal disease continue to plague the regions we work in. We frequently partner with local medical and dental students and recent graduates to share knowledge and provide follow-up for patients.
