Challenge

The World Health Organization estimates that only 2% of people with disabilities in the developing world have access to appropriate rehabilitation. Around 10% of Haitians live with a disability and the need for better care is urgent. There are very few rehabilitation centres in Haiti and we are the only one offering spinal care in the North, with a population of over 1 million people.

Solution

HHA will establish a long term rehab centre at our hospital. Train and develop the skills of Haitian medical professionals/community workers and families. Facilitate a medical outreach team to offer on-going support to discharged patients

Long-Term Impact

The project will offer life saving and transforming care, which can have a huge impact on the development and integration of disabled individuals into mainstream Haitian life.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
