Graph of the Month

In November, The Addis Clinic utilized 8 different medical specialties as we facilitated consultations between global frontline health workers and physician volunteers. 30% of the cases this month were pediatric patients and our pediatric volunteers guided referring clinicians through diagnosis and treatment plans for severe conditions such as epidermal necrolysis (a severe skin reaction) and cerebral malaria, as well as more common pediatric complaints like ear infections. This teamwork between physician volunteers and referring health workers is crucial in an area of the world where there is a severe shortage of physician-level health care.
