Pollock Clinic’s Dr. Jack Chang travelled to Haiti to participate in a No-Scalpel Vasectomy International (NSVI) mission to deliver free vasectomy to men desiring to end their fertility.
Doctor Chang is a veteran of prior NSVI missions in the Philippines and in Kenya – and his most recent volunteer work in Haiti is just part his of ongoing philanthropic commitments abroad.
The images below give you an overview of the mission experience.
No-Scalpel Vasectomy International Inc. is a non-profit organization. Their mission is to provide FREE voluntary vasectomy as a way to help manage population growth in the Philippines, Haiti, Kenya, and other developing countries.
The NSVI and its volunteer medical teams literally change people’s lives. Access to vasectomy can be the difference between exhaustion, crushing poverty, dangerous pregnancy terminations or more children than can be cared for properly.
Not only do families struggle but developing nations with high birth rates often lack adequate resources to support the people who live there. Effective family planning will reduce the burden of poverty, hunger, homelessness, joblessness, unwanted pregnancies, and high maternal and infant mortality rates. The most common cause of death among women in developing countries age 15-35 are complications of pregnancy and delivery.
