Welcome

Kids Health for Haiti is a nonprofit organization working to improve the lives of children in Haiti by using primary care medicine to improve their health.  KHH believes that preventive medical care  and a medical home is essential to optimizing educational achievement.  Anemia, malnutrition, chronic and infectious dieases make learning a challenge.

 

We currently serve 145 students through a partnership with The Power of Education Foundation.  The school in Fontamara, Haiti has kindergarten through fifth grade and continues to grow each year.  KHH also serves a second school near Port Au Prince, Haiti.  Immaculate Conception is a primary school with 185 students.  

KHH works collaboratively in schools and community health centers to provide a medical home for the students.  Medical professionals and trainees participate in trips to work side by side by our Haitian colleagues.  We have a partnership with O.S.A.P.O., a Haitian run community health center located 100km north of Port Au Prince near Montrouis.  We believe that medical knowledge is power and that our students, their parents, medical volunteers and our Haitian colleagues all have information to share with one another!

 	The community is invited to learn about medical topics that interest them, including cholera, safe drinking water, dental hygeine and pregnancy.
