Mission Statement

CORRECT (Comité pour le Relèvement de la REgion de Chateau dans sa Totalité) Health in Haiti was created with the mission to address critical gaps in basic services across health, education, agriculture, commerce, and road infrastructure in the rural community of Chateau, Haiti. CORRECT believes in promoting local solutions to local issues to ensure sustainable development.


Chateau is a rural community of approximately 12,000 people located some 20 miles from Les Cayes in the southern part of Haiti. It is in the mountains, about 1500 meters above sea level, several hours away from any basic services provided. There are no paved roads in the area, which means that people travel on foot, and people who are very sick often die before they can reach the hospital.

To address the gap in healthcare services, CORRECT Health in Haiti, Inc. was founded in 1998 to mobilize the necessary resources for a small medical clinic that serves the people of Chateau. Currently the clinic is staffed with a full-time doctor, three nurses and a lab technician. There is a small laboratory used to diagnose common illnesses in the region, such as malaria, anemia, water-borne diseases, and HIV/AIDS.
