Ensuring a Bright, Healthy Future for Haitian Children
Child mortality in Haiti is not far behind numbers associated with sub-Saharan Africa. It is well known that many of the deaths that occur are preventable. In Haiti, 380 doctors graduate every year for a population of over 10 million people; 40% of which are children.
By focusing on evidence based medicine and one-on-one supervision with experienced pediatricians, Hospital Bernard Mevs and Hospital St. Damian's have joined forces, with the Ministry of Health and the University of Notre Dame of Haiti, to create a residency training program in Pediatrics. The goal of the program: To increase the number of competent pediatricians to serve the country's needs.
Despite our success so far, there is still much work to be done. With your tax-deductible donation today, you are supporting Project Medishare's mission of capacity building, and creating strong specialists in Pediatric care for Haiti’s sickest children.
