Elephanthiasis Pill Distribution

The Ministry of Health's pill distribution program against Elephanthiasis is back. Since last month, many distribution points have been set up in the West department. Some areas are in their second round, others in their third one. Whoever plans staying in Haiti for a long time should take these pills. Elephanthiasis is a debilitating disease that takes years to develop; therefore, its diagnosis is difficult and usually late. Prevention is the best cure for it. Below, there's a picture of a patient with Elephanthiasis; he was seen at the Repheka Clinic of Carrefour Feuilles.
