Summary

This project will empower the 15,000 members of Crochu to achieve their goals of reducing Cholera and other diarrheal diseases in children and improving safe motherhood practices. We will do this by training community health workers, improving sanitation, and educating locals on prevention sources of cholera and diarrhea.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Crochu is a remote rural area of Haiti without access to primary healthcare, few governmental services, and until MTI began working there, had no assistance from humanitarian organizations. Cholera rates in the community are higher than the national average at 16% and 44% of children under 5 suffer from diarrhea on any given day.

How will this project solve this problem?

MTI aims to stop the spread of cholera to less than 2% and decrease diarrheal disease from 44% to 20% in children under 5 by 2016. To do this, MTI will support the community in achieving its goals by offering training and health education to community leaders, health workers and traditional birth attendants in the use of latrines, hand washing practices, water treatment, early identification of illnesses, proper management, oral rehydration, and breastfeeding.

Potential Long Term Impact

Through our community health approaches, the community of Crochu will be empowered to achieve their goal in reducing diarrhea in its children. Because we use a community approach, benefits will extend beyond just children and on to the entire community- creating health for all.
