HEALTH

MAII collaborates with a team of US doctors to sponsor annual health fairs for the communities in northern Haiti. All the children enrolled in our programs receive their yearly health examination during these events. Our doctors also offer educational seminars for all members of the community. The seminars provide insight about nutrition, sanitation, and disease prevention.

Our health fairs operate out of 3 mobile offices that can travel to the people in need. In addition to these portable facilities, MAII is in the process of building a permanent medical center and a pharmacy in Port Margot.

Ways to Get Involved in Our Healthcare Program

  • Become a volunteer health worker. We are currently looking for doctors, nurses, medical assistants, and other health professionals to partner with us.
  • Give the gift of health to a needy child or adult by making a donation today.
  • Help us collect medical supplies and medications for our pharmacy.

Global Life Change

In 2007, MAII launched the Global Life Change (GLC) program to help young Haitians who are infected with HIV/AIDS and malaria. The program facilitates collaboration with a network of schools and churches in order to identify, reach and treat all children in northern Haiti who are suffering from these life-threatening diseases.

According to recent reports issued by the Haitian government, 6.1% of Haiti’s population is HIV positive, including over 17,000 children. Malaria is also rampant, and only 5% of all Haitian children suffering from the disease’s debilitating fevers ever receive treatment. This 5% is mostly the wealthy elites living in the major cities; few youths in rural areas have access to any medical care. Every day, the GLC is changing these sobering statistics.

MAII and the GLC network are promoting justice by ensuring that all children and families in underserved communities in Haiti and elsewhere experience their right to health.

Ways to Get Involved in Our GLC Program

  • Become a volunteer health worker. We are currently looking for doctors, nurses, medical assistants, and other health professionals to partner with us.
  • Give the gift of health to a needy child or adult by making a donation today to provide health education and treatment.
  • Help us collect medications and medical supplies for HIV/Aids and malaria.
  • Donate mosquito nets to help prevent malaria and other insect-borne diseases.
