Photo from Haiti: how to diagnose malaria and typhoid

IMG_0783.JPG
These checklists, scrawled in handwriting on paper pasted to the hospital wall, are used by volunteer doctors and nurses to diagnose and treat patients who come in with symptoms of malaria and typhoid. Both are diseases that we rarely see in the US, but are strikingly common in Haiti. This also taken by my friend Jenny, who recently came back from doing triage work in Port au Prince.
