In most communities in rural Haiti, there are no health clinics at all. When they are ill, community members rely on traditional medicine, which is not advanced enough to cure most of the diseases.Communities that are lucky enough to have rustic health clinics lack the resources to equip and sustain then in the long run without external aid.
Oftentimes, these clinics lack basic medical equipment which their physical structure is falling apart. Instead of building brand new health clinics, which can be very costly, HHPN has planned to renovate and remodeling them. The newly renovated and remodeled health facility contributes to accommodate more patients and improve health care delivery in these communities.
Renovating remodeling health clinics in Haiti’s most remote communities is a pressing need; it is also cheaper. On the other hand, with more than 40% of Haitians living communities where they have to walk five to 10 miles before reaching the nearest clinic. For these communities to have access to the most basic healthcare, building health clinic is also a priority. As it was common in the past where philanthropists or humanitarian organizations would build a structure on behalf of underserved communities without their involvement in the project, HHNP has planned to work with community leaders and involve them from the inception of the construction till the end. Research has shown that community ownership of a project contributes to
