Abstract

In May 2007, Yale University sent a team of nurse practitioner faculty and students to Managua, Nicaragua, as part of a five-year project to provide health care for children who attended a small school in a poor area of the city. Over the course of four days, 88 children were examined and treated. Although the Ministry of Health of Nicaragua theoretically provides health care for all, resources are often limited and difficult to access. By working with teachers and families, the team from Yale University is attempting to help the community establish a school-based clinic to meet the day-to-day needs of the children and establish health care contacts for more serious health care needs.
