What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Hospital Sacre Coeur has 64 inpatient beds. It runs primary care and specialty care outpatient clinics, has full maternity services, a pediatric wing, and a complete laboratory. Besides the medical care facility, there is a Nutrition Center Program on the hospital campus that provides two free meals daily to malnourished pre-school children, averaging 20-30 children per day.

For outreach to provide regional public health services, the hospital has a Community Health Services Department. This department operates dispensaries in outlying towns and hamlets which are staffed by trained 'health agents'. In addition, it operates a Mobile Clinic, which travels to four villages on a regular schedule, each for 5-6 hours per day. Patients are the poor and confined in these areas who have not been able to take advantage of on-site hospital services because of illness, age, pregnancy coupled with the rough terrain that must be traveled. Two of these clinics provide primary care services and two provide pre-natal care. Patient visits average 100-200 per site.

Hospital Sacre Coeur offers other Community Health Services:

 Blood Bank
In the spring of 2005, Hospital Sacre Coeur was designated to have a blood bank (known in Haiti as a 'transfusion post') and as such is also serving patients from area dispensaries and the lower level hospital. The Red Cross is providing the hospital with necessary equipment, supplies, staff training, and funds required to pay the salary of one technician.

 HIV/AIDS
The Prevention of Transmission from Mother to Child (PTME) and Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) programs were started in September 2004 in conjunction with the Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB). In August 2005, Hospital Sacre Coeur began participating in the anti-viral treatment program entitled 'AIDS Relief Project' to treat the entire family affected by HIV/AIDS. This is a grant funded program (via PEPFAR through Catholic Relief Services and the CMMB). Under this grant, Hospital Sacre Coeur's program is limited to serving 200-400 individuals. The hospital is also one of only three sites in Haiti that administers anti-retroviral treatment to children living with HIV/AIDS.

 Filariasis Project
This service provides prevention and treatment of secondary effects of the microfilaire parasite, which causes the disease more commonly referred to as elephantitis. Filariasis has been found in 20% of the student population living in the region. Hospital Sacre Coeur has served as the reference center to treat any significant secondary effects, treating approximately 150 people per year.

 Nutrition Center
Children are referred to this program by a physician or nurse professional as a result of an outpatient visit for another medical problem, at which time malnourishment has been detected. Daily, each participant receives 2 balanced meals plus nutritional snacks and vitamin supplements. On Fridays, the children are sent home with the same two meals per day for Saturday and Sunday. There are organized games, physical exercise, singing, dancing, and storytelling; children are also toilet trained and coached in proper hygiene habits. Progress is tracked closely and regularly to prevent any recidivism, and there is also a monthly health education program for mothers or guardians. The program serves 20-30 children per day. The program also administers 'Medika Mamba' developed by Meds and Food for Kids in St. Louis, MO. Mamba is a ready-to-use-therapeutic food in the form of a vitamin enriched peanut butter that is highly effective in reversing the effects of malnutrition.

 Immunization and Vaccination Program (infant, early childhood, and adult) plus Health Education Programs to outpatients (e.g., diabetes) are conducted regularly.
