Dominican Republic

Our collaboration in the Dominican Republic is focused on work to improve the health of a migrant Haitian/Dominican population living in communities called bateyes. There is a long-standing partnership between a local mission hospital and UMass Chan Medical School. Recently a partnership was created between a local NGO as well. Previous fellow work has focused on a local Community Health Worker (CHW) program as well as further development of the UMass Chan and nursing student global health trips.
