Health Equity International is dedicated to providing essential health services to the people of southern Haiti, especially the most vulnerable. We are committed to building a comprehensive, efficient, and resilient health system that provides high quality care. We believe that ensuring access to life-saving and life-changing health services is a critical component to building strong and productive communities.
Health Equity International is a recognized and award-winning leader providing accessible, compassionate, and quality healthcare in Haiti. In a country where too often the stories are of good intentions gone awry or promises going unfulfilled, we have a consistent track record for getting the job done and making a sustainable impact for the people and communities we serve.
Health Equity International has been able to find success in a context where so many others have failed.
Health Equity International is deeply responsive to and part of the communities we serve. From the beginning, our organization has engaged local Haitian community leadership in making plans, including establishing the hospital in Fond des Blancs. Of our more than 500 employees in Haiti, 98% are Haitian, including the majority of the leadership team: the Director General, Deputy Director General, and Medical Director. This community-led approach ensures that the organization’s initiatives and operations are culturally appropriate, responsive to the priorities of the service recipients, and empower Haitians to help Haitians.
