Talking to Haiti's Overstretched Doctors

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Dr. Harold Previl, the medical director of Hopital Sacre Coeur in Milot (Anna Sale)

After the earthquake, injured Haitians flooded the hospital. Now, some of them are cured, but like the 700,000 other homeless Haitians, they have nowhere to go. So they turn to their doctors for help, adding to the overstretched workload of the medical staff.

    Takeaway producer, Anna Sale has been reporting from Haiti, where she’s accompanying a medical mission to a rural hospital 75 miles from Port-au-Prince.
