Access to Basic Healthcare
Ajan Sante: Four community health workers (ajan sante) are associated with the local State Clinic, and daily move through the villages in the countryside to educate hundreds of villagers about how to purify water and attend to the care and prevention of common diseases.
Rural Clinics: These Clinics extend the outreach into rural areas where medical attention is inaccessible. Clinics are headed by local medical professionals and supported by US-based professionals (when available) at the direction of the local medical director. Patients are identified by our Ajan Sante and provided a means of identification to be “admitted” to the clinic for physical, vaccination and medical prescriptions. Rural Clinics are implemented one to two times each year as funding allows.
Support for 24 HIV Affected Families
In partnership with Childrens Place International (CPI) and through the work of a local Haitian program manager and two Haitian case workers, 24 HIV affected families (81 school-aged children) are provided bi-weekly visits, emergency food and clean water, medical care assistance, school tuition (through donors other than Konbit), supplies and supportive social services. Families remain in the program until children graduate from secondary school.
