9780962600104: The Neglected and Abused: A Physician's Year in Haiti

An eye surgeon remains filled with happiness and despair two decades after his year of volunteer service in Haiti. Dr. Joe Bentivegna still confronts questions that have no answers, including whether volunteer service simply takes the pressure off governments. Here you will see young children revived from the brink of death and dying in Bentivegna's arms. The writing is compelling. His chronicle of the diseases generated by poverty should be used as a textbook in disciplines including medicine, history economics and sociology. Bentivegna confronts unvarnished and basic questions of existence. He is plain-speaking and direct, often frustrated and sometime politically-incorrect
