ABOUT OUR TRIPS
Each year, IAM facilitates multiple medical and surgical trips to Haiti. The primary purpose of each trip is to provide remote villages in Haiti with medical care and to educate Haitians on subjects such as oral hygiene, STD’s, and nutrition. These trips give us the opportunity to walk out our values: to serve in difficult places and circumstances, to educate before medicating, to build long-term solutions that work with limited resources, and to care about the health and life of each patient we treat.
Due to the lack of government funded clinics and available healthcare, our only solution has been to take these clinics to the people. Through our clinical trips, an average of 1,000 to 1,200 patients are treated each year. Our doctors treat everything from headaches to malnourishment, skin rashes to STDs, and dehydration to diabetes. We also fit people for reading glasses and clean teeth. In addition, IAM performs more than 40 surgical procedures, ranging from minor cases, like removing extra digits and performing circumcisions, to major cases, like hernia repairs and emergency cesarean sections.
Both medical and non-medical personnel are needed for our medical trips. If you are interested in attending a trip, please contact us.
