Growing Haitian capacity for primary care from our medical mission roots.
75,000 patient visits have been completed since 1997 by HMMW volunteers and Haitian staff.
At the CSST health care in Thiotte, Haitian staff provide daily health education, primary and preventive care, immunizations, maternal and child health care. Community health care workers reach patients in distant communities throughout the remote and mountainous region. As the “go to” health care facility, CSST extends care to a service area encompassing 160,000 people. Thiotte as the economic hub, further draws patients to CSST from throughout the rural area.
Because of CSST programs, the immunization rate for the region is among the highest in the country.
HMMW provides stable wage support for key patient care positions – ensuring reliability for trusted and year-round primary and preventive health care services. Additional funding from HMMW helps with continuing education for CSST health care staff.
