COVID-19 Response – Education and Immediate Needs Project

Aim: To promote public health precautions and procedures in response to COVID-19. 

Approach

With support from MADRE and the Haitian Women’s Collective, HEAL Haiti will implement an awareness campaign known in Haiti as a ‘Sensibilizacion’ from Monday May 11 to Thursday May 14. We will use World Health Organization risk communication and community engagement guidelines, information from the Haitian Ministry of Public Health, and the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Interim Guidance on camp-like settings.  HEAL Haiti will disseminate life-saving information to the people of bas-Artibonite, Haiti through social media, tutorials, and sound-trucks (vehicles with loudspeakers).

Project Overview

The COVID Response – Education and Immediate Needs project is an initiative taken on behalf of Haitian Women’s Collective, supported by MADRE and delivered by HEAL Haiti. The purpose of this project is to inform the residents of St. Marc and Montrouis, Haiti on internationally recognized methods of reducing COVID-19 prevalence. This project also promotes public health among residents. This program will make use of our community partners, local infrastructure, and customs as well as ingenuity to increase understanding amongst bas-Artibonite residents.

Context

  • As of, April 13, 2020, there are 40 confirmed cases with an 8% death rate.
  • Many residences receive little reliable information on how to avoid transmission.
  • HEAL Haiti has grown as a trusted source of healthcare intervention and education in the bas-Artibonite region.
  • Public health challenges in Haiti have a direct impact on the health status of the population.
  • Informed residents are better equipped to reduce COVID-19 transmission.

Solution

Deliver critical information for preparedness, prevention, and control of COVID-19 through:

  • Sound-trucks to reach rural areas
  • Brochure distribution and tutorials in mass-gathering prone sites
  • Social media (WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram)

Outcomes

Expected Outcomes

At the end of this 4-day awareness campaign:

  • 6 motivational and wise infographics will be produced and disseminated
  • 20,000 Haitians will be exposed to information from HEAL Haiti
  • 5 Sites will receive tutorials and brochures for greater information distribution

 

Happy Mother’s Day!

A mother is a caring, selfless, loving woman who sacrifices her needs and wants for the well being of her children. She also works hard to make sure that her child is equipped with the skills, knowledge and abilities to be a successful human being. Everything you do is all completely worth it.

This week, HEAL Haiti will deliver a COVID Response – Education and Immediate Needs project empowering 5 young women to fight the spread of Coronavirus in bas-Artibonite, Haiti. The young women will be instrumental in reaching over 20,000 people in Haiti. The women will use community partners, local infrastructure, customs and ingenuity to increase understanding amongst bas-Artibonite residents. This project is made possible by MADRE and the Haitian Women’s Collective.

We would like to thank all the HEAL Haiti Mothers who have made an impact in the lives of their children and in the communities abroad. It has been a difficult time for those with has sick friends and relatives and for those who have lost loved ones.

On behalf of HEAL Haiti, you are the FRONTLINERS!! Each and every day!

#GivingTuesdayNow

Poverty and limited access to basic primary medical services increases the transmission rates of preventable communicable, chronic and waterborne diseases. Additionally, there is a generation of motivated young people with the desire and ability to address the country’s prevalent health care needs but lack of institutional knowledge and opportunities to do so.

HEAL Haiti delivers health care and education. Our annual health fairs educate and train over 150 medical professionals and nursing students and provides life-saving medications, medical examinations, and disaster relief preparedness training to over 6,500 men, women, and children. Our health and community-driven experiences include diabetes testing, chronic and blood pressure monitoring, pediatric and dental hygiene screenings, and sexually-transmitted infection and mental health education.

Help us serve over 1,000 men, women and children in St. Marc, Haiti with life-saving primary medical care and health education. For seven years, we’ve hosted annual health fairs that provide education and training to 150+ medical professionals and medical examinations to 6,500+ men, women, and children. Each patient receives 3 months’ worth of medications and vitamins. They also receive a Sac de Sante wellness kit filled with non-perishable food, self-care supplies and dental hygiene products.

HEAL Haiti is committed to building institutional capacity on-the-ground to maximize the long-term impact of our efforts. HEAL Haiti plans to break ground on a globally-recognized Academic Health Consortium and Wellness Center in St. Marc. Through partnerships with local organizations, medical providers and educators, we will develop a cadre of highly skilled health professionals prepared to respond to Haiti’s healthcare needs and deliver sustainable quality primary healthcare in Haiti.
