Exciting week here - have been working with a team from International Medical Assoc. who came to do MDA (Mass Drug Administration) for the Filiaisis parasite which causes elephantitis and also for worms - a big problem for the children here. Taking this treatment also decreases malaria by about 50%. We have done MDA for about 300 people every day while 3 docs and 2 NPs ran a general medical clinic with meds also provided. An amazing process. It was good to be out in the villages again though the poverty there is even worse than here near the hospital, children who are malnourished and clothed in rags.
