Notice to All CRUDEM Volunteers

March 10, 2016
Since Haiti experiences many infectious diseases that are not ordinarily of concern in the US, CRUDEM advises all volunteers to ensure that they are current on routine, travel and occupational vaccinations. The following CDC link provides valuable vaccination and other health-related information of interest to anyone traveling to Haiti:
The CDC has issued a warning to travelers to Haiti concerning the Zika virus, a mosquito borne infectious disease of the same family as Dengue Fever. Volunteers who are or may be pregnant should pay special attention to this warning. The Zika virus is believed to cause poor birth outcomes including birth defects (e.g., microcephaly). CRUDEM recommends that anyone who is or may be pregnant NOT serve as a volunteer at Hôpital Sacré-Coeur. The following CDC links contain important information on the Zika virus:
NB: THE ZIKA VIRUS CAN BE TRANSMITTED SEXUALLY. ACCORDINGLY, ANYONE WITH A SPOUSE OF CHILD BEARING AGE SHOULD TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT PRIOR TO VOLUNTEERING AT HOPITAL SACRE-COEUR.
Should you have questions about the Zika virus or any health-related issues concerning travel to Haiti, CRUDEM recommends that you consult your physician or a travel medicine clinic.
