Summary

Remote Area Medical - RAM will return to Haiti in January 2019 to provide free medical & dental care to hundreds of people in need. Many Haitians live in abject poverty with little or no access to affordable care. This is why RAM and its volunteers have operated on the island nation since 1995. RAM's most recent clinics in Port-au-Prince and Hinche provided $195,700 worth of free medical & dental care to 1,057 people. RAM will return to give more care in January 2019.

Challenge

Millions of people in Haiti lack access to affordable health care, housing, education, and stable employment. Even more lack access to routine dental care as there are only 300 dentists in the entire country. Because of these factors, coupled with the fact that Haiti is also prone to severe natural disasters, many people are left with few choices when it comes to accessing even the most basic of health and dental care. For many people, this ultimately leads to pain, suffering, and early death.

Solution

Remote Area Medical (RAM) will help the alleviate pain and suffering of Haitian residents by providing free, high-quality dental and medical care to people in need through the operation of semi-annual mobile medical clinics. This will ultimately lead to improved health and improved lives for thousands of Haitians each year.

Long-Term Impact

This project will have a long-term impact on the residents of Haiti by ensuring they can improve their health outlook without having to choose between paying for health care or paying for other life necessities, like food. By improving a person's health situation, RAM has a tremendous impact because better health often offers a person a better quality of life through the alleviation of pain and anguish, improved employment opportunities, and enhanced relationships with friends and family.
