Date: February 10, 2010
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has launched a web site for medical workers who wish to volunteer their services to the earthquake relief effort in Haiti.
From the website http://www.hhs.gov/haiti/volunteers.html:
“…The immediate and long-term health and medical needs of Haiti are currently being assessed by the United Nations and the Pan American Health Organization with the Haitian government. Once we know more about the results of this assessment, we’ll have a better sense of the possibilities for volunteering. In the meantime, HHS has set up an email where medical professionals can send offers of volunteer medical care services. If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to Haiti.firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, clinical area, specialty skills, degrees, and language capabilities (in particular, whether you speak Haitian Creole or French and if so, your level of fluency). We'll log your information and share it with USAID; you may be contacted if an opportunity becomes available that matches your skill set…”
