Public Health Brigades attack the health problems our medical and dental brigades see in the clinic at their source. Public health brigades build sanitation stations consisting of a sink, shower, and toilet, clean water retention pools, eco-stoves and cement floors of houses. These construction projects greatly reduce the exposure community members have to parasites, bacteria and other environmental factors that cause sickness within communities. Public health brigades typically last for seven days. See the mock itinerary below as well as more detailed breakdowns of the public health projects and their impact.
