Hope for Haiti's
Healthcare Program focuses on three main activities: distributing medications and medical supplies to healthcare facilities in Port-au-Prince and the south; operating the Infirmary St. Etienne in downtown Les Cayes; and hosting Medical Missions of visiting nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals who provide mobile medical outreach to rural populations.
The process of procuring, shipping, and distributing medications and medical supplies is an enormous part of Hope for Haiti's
activities, both in Naples, FL and in Haiti. We work with corporate, non-profit, and private sources in the States to acquire the medications and supplies, and then distribute them to over 60 locations
throughout Haiti. Last year alone, we delivered over $50 million
worth of medications and medical supplies to healthcare providers and patients in Haiti.
The centerpiece of Hope for Haiti's
Healthcare Program is the Infirmary St. Etienne, which has been operating in downtown Les Cayes since April 2009. Serving 150-200 patients per week
, the Hope for Haiti
Infirmary has acquired a solid reputation as a quality healthcare provider in the Southern Department. Patients come from the city and from numerous rural provinces seeking the affordable, accessible care. Our Haitian staff includes two doctors, two nurses, a lab-technician, two community health nurses, and an administrator
The other pillar of Hope for Haiti's
approach to healthcare is coordination. We hold frequent workshops at our office in Les Cayes with various actors in the local healthcare sector, including national and international NGOs, public and private hospitals, birthing clinics, and visiting medical teams. We are constantly seeking to match our supplies of lifesaving medications with the demands of other facilities, streamline the provision of services, and communicate better with all available partners to improve health outcomes.
