Access to quality healthcare is precarious even under the best of circumstances in Haiti. The Colorado Haiti Project (CHP) is partnering with the community of Petit Trou, Haiti and the Haitian Ministry of Health and Population (MSPP) to strengthen access to quality healthcare for all in the community of Petit Trou. In 2013, the Colorado Haiti Project signed an unprecedented memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the MSPP and the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti to build a comprehensive, responsive, and equitable health system for the region.
Over the Next 5-7 years the CHP, MSPP, Community Partnership Will:
Key Health Program Highlights since the MOU:
In partnership with Boulder Community Health, trained and equipped community health workers with life-saving tools and skills to promote health in remote rural locations.
CHP’s past health activities have set a foundation for empowering a strong and comprehensive local health network that creates sustainable solutions to health needs in Petit Trou. In early 2015 we placed a full time representative on the ground in Petit Trou to provide technical and managerial leadership, and further strengthen relationships with the MSPP and our Haitian partners. This relationship has already become an indispensable part of our continued work in developing public health infrastructure in Haiti.
