Lifting the Health Burden on Isolated Communities in the Dominican Republic
“If this project did not exist, there would be more women with cancer, more pregnant teenagers, more people with HIV.”
Leona Adolfo has worked as a nurse in Profamilia’s mobile health unit for more than three years. She travels to isolated communities throughout the Dominican Republic to ensure the most vulnerable have access to health care. In Abacao Batey, a community of mostly Haitian immigrants, more than 400 people live in wooden shacks without latrines.
