Project Medishare is dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of all Haitians. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. Access to health care and development services are limited. There are four health professionals for every 10,000 people – even less in rural communities. Easily treatable and preventable diseases often lead to death, especially among pregnant women and children. Without basic health care, efforts to improve economic and social conditions in the country are futile. Project Medishare empowers Haitians to provide and receive access to comprehensive, quality health care.
We don’t simply “give” Haitians health care and related services through aid and medical missions. Instead, we help Haitians help themselves through grassroots public health initiatives, and by investing in the training and employment of local medical professionals. Each year, our team of doctors, nurses, community health workers and volunteers care for thousands of children and adults in Haiti. We help mothers deliver healthy babies in a safe environment. We ensure school children are able to eat a nutritious, well-balanced meal. We enhance the skills of local doctors in specialty areas such as pediatrics, wound care and neurosurgery.
