In March 2013, the HGD Foundation clinic in collaboration and with support from UCLA Global Health Volunteers completed two research initiatives: Vaginitis Etiology and Community Mapping Health Exercise. In one week, HGD Staff and UCLA Volunteers screened 200 women; There had been a recent increase in the number of women complaining of “vaginitis symptoms” which prompted HGD Medical Staff and UCLA Haiti Global Director Dr. David Cutler, to collaborate to determine the cause and to establish a diagnostic and treatment protocol at the clinic.  Researchers presented their work at the 2013 Poster Presentation at the American Academy of Family Practice and the 2013 Conference on Infectious Diseases.

The community mapping exercise was successful in interviewing households in the community to determine the need of a birthing center.
