Summary

For nearly 25 years, Project Medishare (PM) has been addressing critical health needs in Haiti's Central Plateau, one of the poorest regions in the country. We are the main - and in some cases only - provider of essential health services to roughly 80,000 people across three rural communities. PM operates two health clinics, and through our network of community health agents, we extend healthcare access to remote villages through activities such as mobile clinics, rally posts and home visits.

Challenge

Access to quality healthcare in Haiti is limited. There are four health professionals for every 10,000 people - less in rural communities. Many rural Haitians walk for hours to reach the nearest health facility, which is a barrier to seeking care. As a result, easily treatable and preventable diseases often lead to death, especially among pregnant women and children. Through our community-based approach, PM delivers healthcare when and where it's needed.

Solution

In partnership with the Ministry of Health, PM operates two fixed-facility clinics in the Central Plateau and conducts weekly mobile clinics. Our network of 70 community health agents travel door-to-door, village-to-village, making it possible for thousands of people in the most remote areas to access basic healthcare. PM's mix of institutional and community-based care is crucial to ensuring that the most vulnerable populations have access to lifesaving treatment, medications and vaccinations.

Long-Term Impact

Through this project, 80,000 Haitians in three rural communities will have access to quality healthcare, which will improve their health and well-being, and ultimately save lives.
