Primarily worked to reduce the infant and early childhood mortality working through Asociacion Dominicana de Planificacion Familiar (ADOPLAFAM), a local NGO. I worked with and trained local community health promoters on improving the prevalence of exclusive breastfeeding, on safe water purification and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases using Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT). Secondary projects included initiating a young women's group, HIV prevention, and domestic violence awareness.
