Week 5 – Mumbai and the Juice Cleanse

This month’s program focuses on tropical diseases.  It’s monsoon season in Mumbai so common diseases we’ve seen so far are malaria, dengue, typhoid, gastroenteritis.  There’s also been the usual TB, jaundice and malnutrition cases.  I was sick for most of my first week in Mumbai (experiencing one of these tropical diseases we nicknamed the “juice cleanse”) so I can’t say much about clinic for Week 5.

Overall, Mumbai has a calmer attitude than Delhi and very rainy.  So far, it has rained almost continuously every day.
