Challenge

Access to medical care has always been limited in Haiti; however, COVID, in addition to natural disasters, economic hardship and lack of medical infrastructure have left the people of Port-de-Paix, Haiti with almost no access to healthcare and rehabilitative services. Fear, combined with limited educational opportunities, has led to stigma surrounding COVID, further isolating those who are ill, furthering transmission, and perpetuating a cycle of pain, illness, poverty, and stigma.

Solution

The STAND clinic is one of the few medical clinics in northwestern Haiti that continues to provide safe care during the COVID pandemic as well as education regarding the disease. By keeping the clinic open we can provide up to date education to our patients and their families, continue home visits ,and assist those who are injured to return to work. In addition to educating our patients and families how to stay safe during the pandemic, we can continue to provide 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 movement addressed and treated in a timely manner. Additionally, STAND trained Haitian nurses and therapists will address COVID as well as chronic concerns such as high blood pressure, uncontrolled blood sugar and dehydration. This approach will decrease preventable diseases, improve overall health and wellness, and reduce the stigma associated with COVID.
