Junior Exantus is a health agent for Hôpital Albert Schweitzer in Haiti. He has been a health agent for three years.

“I wanted to enter the field to help the community,” said Exantus through translation. “I saw a lot of illnesses in the community.”

Exantus is the health agent I met on Monday at one of his monthly mobile health posts.

“I see the same mothers each month,” he told me. “I have gotten to know them quite well.”
