Summary

STAND: The Haiti Project is initiating a sustainable Haitian-run physical therapy and medical clinic in one of the lowest income communities in Haiti.

Challenge

Natural disasters, economic hardship and lack of medical infrastructure have left the people of Port-de-Paix, Haiti with limited access to healthcare and no access to physical therapy. Physically demanding lives and lack of healthcare lead to many orthopedic and neurological injuries that keep people from working, feeding their families, and community participation. Despite these injuries being amenable to physical therapy, lack of access perpetuates this cycle of pain and poverty.

Solution

STAND currently provides physical therapy and medical services to the people of Port-de-Paix for six weeks out of the year via American based volunteer teams. By hiring Haitian-trained local therapists and nurses, STAND will be able to provide physical therapy, primary medical care, and healthcare education to the community on a consistent basis. Training Haitian clinicians will ensure that the clinic is sustainable and culturally informed, allowing access to quality healthcare year-round.

Long-Term Impact

STAND's Haitian- run, year-round clinic will allow the people of Port-de-Paix to have their injuries, pain, and impaired movements addressed and treated in a timely manner. Additionally, STAND trained Haitian nurses will address chronic concerns such as high blood pressure, uncontrolled blood sugar and dehydration. This approach will decrease preventable diseases, improve overall health and wellness, and improve sustainable economic growth as people are able to return to work.
