Officially called the Centre de Santé Union de Grand-Gosier, our clinic is located in the southeastern town of Marjofre about five hours by rough jeep roads from Port-au-Prince.
The clinic opened in January. 2016 offering consults 5 days a week with a doctor and nurse in attendance. Today, the clinic operates around the clock serving 9,000 residents annually, and our Haitian staff has grown to 13 doctors, nurses, laboratory and maternity aides and administrators, all with roots in the rural south and borderlands.where we serve.
Haiti has the highest maternal mortality rate in the Americas, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The danger of losing the mother increases the deeper one moves into the countryside where HHP serves.
We created Mezon Nesans Fanmi, a small family birth center and medical residence, for that reason.

Haitian women are called the 'poto mitan': the backbone of their country. If they become ill, the family structure collapses.
Through HHP's clinic and birth center, women in our rural region are participating in family planning, vaccines, prenatal services and cancer screenings, most of them for the first time in their lives.
Twice a month our staff travel by motorcycles loaded down with medicine, medical equipment, and administrative supplies to set up pop-up clinics at marketplaces, community centers or even rustic disco spots in six tiny communities in our zone.
Community health workers announce their arrival, bringing streams of locals who otherwise must travel for hours for medical attention, paying for transport they cannot afford.
