Zerida Nyinaguhirwe is one of the first breast cancer patients to complete cancer treatment at Butaro Hospital, a Ministry of Health hospital in Rwanda that is supported by Partners In Health.
Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais will provide primary care services to about 185,000 people in Mirebalais and two nearby communities. But patients from a much wider area—all of central Haiti and areas in and around Port-au-Prince—also will be able to receive secondary and tertiary care. We anticipate seeing as many as 500 patients every day in our ambulatory clinics when the hospital is fully operational.
The 205,000-square foot, 300-bed facility will fill a huge void, locally and nationally, for people who previously had limited access to quality health care.
And at a time when Haiti desperately needs skilled professionals, HUM will provide high-quality education for the next generation of Haitian nurses, medical students, and resident physicians.
Thanks to incredibly generous supporters, we have raised funds to design, build, and outfit the hospital and residences, and we will continue to rely on our friends and supporters who believe we can—and should—provide health care to people everywhere, and especially to people living on the margin of extreme poverty.
