We provide life-saving community and facility based health care in Haiti, Uganda and South Sudan. We equip and empower locally led health initiatives in a range of ways, including through training and mentorship, infrastructural improvements, medical equipment/materials and financial support. We help a range of health projects, but specifically focus on maternal, neonatal/infant and trauma care.
FACILITY BASED CARE
In 2007, HHA co-founded Hopital Convention Baptiste d’Haiti (HCBH), a general hospital in northern Haiti which is now one of the region's leading facilities. HCBH is a 100+ bed hospital that employs 270 Haitian staff and supports over 20,000 patients a year.
In 2012 we co-founded the hospital's Maternity and Neonatal Unit which now supports over 1,600 deliveries a year, helping some of the region’s most high risk pregnancies. The neonatal unit is also a regional referral unit and supports over 600 babies a year, receiving premature babies from as far as 75 miles away. The hospital also provides general and orthopaedic surgery, trauma, internal medicine, rehabilitation and other clinical services. Every day through HHAs support, HCBH provides life-saving care to those across northern Haiti.
COMMUNITY BASED CARE
HHA support a range of community health programmes in Haiti and Uganda, focused on providing care for the most vulnerable women and children. This includes enabling local partners to provide effective health care and prevention in the community, through immunisations, health education, malnutrition treatment and the identification and referral of high risk cases that need the assistance of a clinic or hospital.
Our work includes empowering Community Health Agents and Traditional Birth Attendants in remote Haitian villages and equipping 3 UNHCR Refugee Settlements in Uganda with the CRADLE project which helps support the most high risk pregnancies. Every year, thousands of women and children are supported through these efforts.
