Dear Friends,

Thank you for your contribution to Partners In Health supporting our work in Haiti! We truly appreciate your partnership and your commitment to our mission to deliver life-saving care to those affected by the devastating earthquake in August 2021. Your support makes our work possible!

Zanmi Lasante (ZL), Partners In Health’s sister organization in Haiti, does not work in the region, but partners in the Ministry of Public Health and Population and non-government organizations in the South reached out to ask for assistance in launching a comprehensive emergency response, knowing ZL’s depth of experience in critical care and effective response to the 2010 earthquake. Together, they provided direct care and support in the region, triaged complicated cases to neighboring hospitals, and, in some cases, airlifted patients to Zanmi Lasante’s Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais (HUM).

Over the past year, Zanmi Lasante has:

  • triaged and treated 67,658 patients from the earthquake zone with severe conditions, including those requiring orthopedic surgery, at HUM
  • served 36,825 patients through multiple mobile clinics staffed by physicians, nurses, medical residents, and psychologists
  • provided 3,113 survivors with psychosocial assistance, including food, hygiene products, and school materials
  • sent 209 medical items and equipment, including portable ultrasound machines, to support hospitals in the South

This was all done despite significant challenges: gang violence, protests, roadblocks, damaged communications infrastructure, and fuel shortages pose grave operational and logistical challenges for the ZL team, and COVID-19’s spread remained a concern nationwide.

And so, despite the instability, ZL persists with unwavering support from PIH’s care coordination site. Not one ZL facility has yet closed or been forced to stop caring for patients throughout the region. Indeed, 1.3 million people, or 1 in 10 Haitians, rely on ZL-supported facilities for care, treatment and accompaniment.    

As weeks turned to months, Zanmi Lasante and partners shifted from emergency response to medium- and long-term planning that focused on reinforcing the public health system—both at facilities supported by Zanmi Lasante and in the South—so that the next disaster might have less of an impact.

For nearly 40 years PIH has been committed to building resident health systems in Haitian communities. As we continue to strengthening health systems for all Haitians, we are truly grateful for your partnership and kindness. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.

In Solidarity,

Partners In Health
