Case Study # 1
You are visiting a family in rural Costa Rica who were referred to your organization because of their significant health challenges. The family consists of a 54-year-old grandfather who is addicted to alcohol and cigarettes and spends significant time securing funds to finance these behaviors. His 48-year-old wife, the mother of eight children (three of whom are still living at home), maintains their 10’ ´ 12’ dirt-floored, mud-walled home and cooks their one meal per day in the fire pit in the corner of their home. They walk a half-mile to get water from the community’s well if there isn’t water in the barrel in which they gather rain water. While their three daughters are out earning their living as prostitutes, the grandmother cares for their six children, all younger than 8 years of age, who are in varying stages of undress and who have skin, hair, and intestinal parasites. (Learning Objectives: 2, 3, 4)
