Here is a picture of the great Haitians Marched Against AIDS Stigma In 1990 in Brooklyn, New York.
It was April 20, 1990 when the Haitian community in New York made history - Over 100,000 Haitians poured across the Brooklyn Bridge and tied up downtown Manhattan to protest against an act most people think is discriminatory. When the AIDS epidemic came, there was a recommendation by the United States, FDA to exclude all Haitians from donating blood because they were supposedly more at risk of HIV infection
An alert for Zika virus infection in Haiti
The symptoms of Zika fever are similar but milder to Dengue fever or Chikungunya. Recently, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) has circulated an Epidemiological Alert in the Americas. The sample specimens of Aedes and other mosquitoes responsible for the epidemic were collected by the Haitian Epidemiology Department and sent for testing to the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) in Trinidad and Tobago-- but those were found negative. No evidence of Zika fever has been found in Haiti. However, as a preventive measure, the Haitian Ministry of Health has decided to maintain its regular surveillance. It has directed health service providers to report immediately, if they ever notice any patient with symptoms of Zika fevers. There is no antiviral treatment of Zika fever, only the symptoms can be lessened by treatments.
Here is a simple but major invention that is supposed to improve sanitary living condition in Haiti. A Pastor creates reusable diaper to help children in Haiti.
Michael Wahl has a mission to ensure clean and healthy living for people living in the developing nations. When Pastor Michael Wahl witnessed how the infants and toddlers in the underdeveloped villages in Haiti openly poop in the house and how such waste is disposed unhygienically, he recognized some of the leading causes of uncontrolled spread of diseases like dysentery, cholera, typhus fever and typhoid. Earlier, he had worked on some projects to provide filtered water to some dry areas in Haiti. Now he realized that having clean water alone would not solve Haiti's problems with sanitation. He decided that something needed to be done to eliminate the open pooping of the infants in the house, He along with his wife Starla, created a reusable diaper called DriButts (the name of his NGO) in partnership with Slingshot(r) Product. These long lasting diapers include a super absorbent bamboo cloth liner with natural anti-microbial properties. During Michael's last visit to Haiti in the early September, he has distributed 720 reusable DriButts Diapers to 360 rural area families-- --- enough for an infant for two years. Wahl will return to Haiti in December with more diapers.
