Strengthening the CORE Project: March 1 - July 12, 2017

August 05, 2017 - 

Since our first involvement in Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake, Real Medicine Foundation (RMF) has focused our efforts on strengthening existing facilities that wish to offer quality services to less fortunate groups. First, we teamed up with CDTI Hospital in the post-earthquake emergency phase, and we later promoted the idea of public/private hospital consortium with a strong and organized social component. The hospital consortium project, linking 4 major private facilities, became the second healthcare project green lighted by the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC) after the Mirebalais Hospital.

Since sufficient funding was never reached to...

Background

Since arriving shortly after the January 12, 2010 earthquake, RMF has continued to move forward with a comprehensive long-term strategy to implement more sustainable health services development in Haiti and help rebuild the shattered health system. RMF made free health services available at Lambert Santé Surgical Clinic in Pétion-Ville from 2010 to 2011, offering quality health care to patients in need of primary, secondary, and even tertiary care; more than 1,800 consultations and 450 surgeries were provided during this period.

Striving Towards Future Goals: October 2016

October 16, 2016 - 

Haiti’s healthcare system remains very disorganized. Despite efforts undertaken by the Haitian Ministry of Health and Population (MSPP), funding and logistical help from international organizations in many areas of the country, and numerous NGO-run primary care centers in many of Haiti’s ten regional departments, access to care, let alone quality care, remains, at best, limited and dysfunctional.

In the public sector, hospitals and healthcare centers are plagued with a chronic lack of funding and scarcity of medical supplies. Consequently, patient care is often limited and dependent on a family’s capacity to buy, out-of-pocket, the needed...

Surgical Support Program - Long Term Health Care Capacity Building: August 2016

September 15, 2016 - 

Starting in 2012, the orthopedic surgical support program has been providing complex surgeries and longer term follow-up treatment for children and adults suffering from chronic or acquired orthopedic conditions. These conditions are often extremely severe, ranging from congenital deformities to posttraumatic impairments, in many cases caused by the January 2010 earthquake.

RMF’s surgical program started its first installment with both adults and children, and then refocused its aim toward specialized care only for children and young adults. The patients selected for surgical treatment come from the metropolitan area of Haïti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, but now some patients also come...
