Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Provide better access to affordable healthcare through a birthing center in the rural mountain community of Tome Gato, Haiti and the construction of a surgical center in Leogane. Both these facilities will bring life saving, quality care to women and children in the Leogane commune. No longer women will deliver at home without a skilled birth attendant and emergency care will be available.

FHM continues to work with the Ministry of Health and other organizations to standardize the care and treatment of women with cervical disease. FHM's goal is to expand cervical cancer screening nationwide using HPV screening when available.

Continued fundraising and collaborations with other organizations to expand resources for cervical cancer prevention and safe motherhood programs. Work with individuals, churches, organizations and grants to open and staff facilities primarily in central Haiti and the Leogane commune. Expand individual education through service learning opportunities which include individual mission teams and university student participation.

Family Health Ministries has been working in Haiti for over 22 years. We have developed strong partnerships in the country including the Ministry of Health, FOSREF, Chitia, and PIH. Through strong Haitian leadership, we are able to be successful in our programs because it is not FHM doing the work, but the partnerships that support the vision.

Construction is complete on the Birthing Center in Tom Gato. Staff has been hired and the center is operational. Services need to continue to expand to add more educational programming and increase use of contraception.

Funding continues to be a need for the Surgical Center in Leogane before construction on that facility can take place.

Cervical cancer screening needs to be added to the rural mountain areas through the use of public health workers.
