Phase 1 – Equipping the Caregivers
Equip Haitian physicians and nurses working in smaller, community-based clinics and hospitals with appropriate basic medical equipment. The goal is to ensure the healthcare professionals have the tools necessary for quality patient care and the ability to treat commonly encountered conditions like hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and respiratory infections. Metrics and indicators will be put in place and collected quarterly to measure the impact on numbers of patients that can be seen, diagnosed, appropriately referred, and treated in a timely manner. By collecting preliminary capacity data and quarterly data from participating healthcare providers the goal is to measure the impact on access to care and quality of care as part of Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) for this program. Based on the results, the plan is to formulate new partnerships and expand this program to the rest of Haiti. To date, we have distributed kits in the three northern departments of Haiti and will be expanding to the south throughout 2021.
All equipment selected for this program was either directly purchased in Haiti and/ or selected because it can be sustained with disposables from Haiti.
