Partners in Health
To address the epidemics of poverty and disease, Partners in Health employs a comprehensive and community-based approach. In the days and months following the January 2010 Haiti earthquake, Partners in Health staff responded quickly, providing emergency medicine, performing surgeries and establishing medical clinics to serve the needs of displaced persons. The approach includes operating four clinics, six days a week, that provides comprehensive primary health care and social support services such as maternal and child health, reproductive health care, HIV and tuberculosis testing, and malnutrition screening and treatment. As part of their work in Haiti, Partners in Health trained and hired 60 local residents to serve as community health workers at each location, improved outreach into the settlements and provided jobs and income. On average, the clinics test and treat nearly 10,000 patients each week.
