Haiti reports some of the world’s worst health indicators, which continue to inhibit the country’s development. More than 40 percent of the population lack access to essential health and nutrition services, and healthcare in Haiti has the highest rates of infant, under-five and maternal mortality in the Western Hemisphere.

According to the Center for Disease Control, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, diarrhoea, respiratory infections, malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS are the leading causes of death when it comes to healthcare in Haiti. And these preventable diseases pose an even bigger problem for people in rural areas, were 60 percent of the population lack access to basic health-care services.

To address these challenges, Hope for Haiti operates an infirmary in southern Haiti, and partners with 24 rural communities to improve the Haiti public healthcare system in southern Haiti. Our programmatic activities include:
