Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, Haiti Health Professional's Network HHPN is an organization a large group of nurses and doctors created to serve individuals and families from low-income communities in the U.S. and Haiti. As healthcare costs keep rising, everyone is feeling the effects, especially low-income families in inner cities and rural areas across America and the world.
For HHPN to reach its goals and objectives, we emphasized organizing health fair and taking medical mission trips to rural communities. In our medical mission trips we also provide shoes to people who cannot afford them. During our recent medical mission to the Northwest, we handed several dozen of pair of shoes to individuals of all age group who desperately needed to protect them against soil-tranmitted worms that often lead to filariasis and other neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).

Haiti has the lowest literacy rate in the Western hemisphere, specially among girls living in rural areas. Due to the critical importance of literacy to achive for a community or individuals to become healthy, HHPN has been granting scholarship to the youth so the can graduate from high school and pursue a career in the medical fied. In doing so these young people will acquire the knowlege and experience to provide health care to individuals in their own communities. In awarding these scholarships to the youth, HHPN hope to help the target communities help themselves.
One of our goals is to ensure that the youth acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become forward thinkers, productive members of society, and tomorrow's leaders who will make the world a better place for generations to come
HHPN offers 3 types of scholarships to girls and boys in rural areas from age 5 to 20 who are orphans or those living in extreme poverty. These scholarship covers fees for primary, scondary and vocational education.
Haiti Health Professionals' Network aims to assist low-income communities in the US and Haiti in their quest for access to heath care. In the US we prioritize Heal Fair while our main focus in Haiti is to provide its rural communities with access to basic health care through medical mission trips on a regular basis.In both Haiti and the US, the primary focus of our organization is preventive care is the best policy.

Thank you so much for your kind donation and for always supporting our medical missions in the US and Haiti. Every years thousands of low-income individuals in Florida and in Haiti receive both treatment and preventative care contribuitiong to the improvement of the quality of their lives. Such gesture of solidarity these good human beings would not be possible without the selfless support of our sponsors in the USA and nurses and doctors from diverse bacgrounds. On the behalf of tens thousands of recent earthquake survivors in Haiti, HHPNetwork is very grateful for your generous support to the these who still desperately need your support.
On September 25th Haiti Healthcare Professional Network Inc (HHPN), consisting of 8 persons from different states , backgrounds and nationalities left the US to embark on a medical mission to the South of Haiti . This was our first time to the south. We choose the south because it was recently ravished by the earthquake. We were joined in Haiti by a dentist, 4 medical doctors, 2 nurses, 2 police officers and 2 drivers.
Our first day started out in Jontiyot. Driving there you could see damaged buildings still waiting to be cleared. We used a local church where we saw over 400 people with various issues but mostly hypertension, dental issues, anemia, GI issues and arthritis. There were so many kids we were not prepared to treat. We handed out all snacks, clothes, shoes and of course medicines as the doctors prescribed and treated. Surprisingly there were not as many open wounds at this church as we were expecting.
Second day we journey a long way off to Rosier. The need here was much greater. We treated over 600 people mostly with the same issues but more open wounds here some with sutures from surgeries done for broken bones. Our team worked tirelessly here until the last person was treated. The community was very receptive and appreciative. On the third day we stayed closer to base as it was a short day. We saw about 560 people including kids. At this church we had kid’s activities as the team was split to round off the day.
This trip could not be possible had it not been for sponsors, partners and well wishes like you. From the bottom of our hearts HHPN thank you. Our goal is to create sustainability by building clinics and leaving our local doctors to provide continuity of care. Many of the conditions we saw there are preventable but the area lacks access. Many tooth could be saved but there’s no preventative dental care. We urge you sponsors please stand with us. We are a small group so 100% of what you donate goes directly to the people as all our members are volunteers using their own money to fund what we do. Please refer to the attached photos to see more.
You can join in regardless of your skills by becoming a volunteer, raising funds, and makiing a donation. As a volunteer you can help here in the states or getting involved in medical mission trips to Haiti. Anything you do will make a difference in the lives of thousands of people. You can help wherever you are. Remember!
Your donations or gifts are the lifeblood of our organization. Without your kind donation, it will be impossible for us to continue throwing health fair in the U.S. and medical mission trips to Haiti. Your donation is tax-deductible; it helps provide health care and restore hope to people who often spend several years without medical attention.
