BOL will travel to Mao, Dominican Republic this March to provide approximately 400 patients with basic healthcare services and to Amman, Jordan this April to screen an estimated 1,000 Syrian refugees.
"BOL is eager to bring its Screening and Prevention Program to Jordan for the first time," said Katie Chandler, BOL's Director of Programs. "Our goal is to better understand the prevalence of kidney disease among Syrian refugees so that we can fill the gap between the health needs of this vulnerable population and the healthcare services available."
BOL also has medical missions planned in 15 other countries, including combined primary care and screening events in Haiti, Bolivia and Nicaragua, our annual kidney donor mission in Guatemala and dialysis missions in Nigeria, Ethiopia and Sudan.
