A Plan, 14 Hens, and a Rooster in Chiapas

Chronic malnutrition affects 44 percent of children in rural Chiapas--a rate that's six times the national average in Mexico. Compaňeros En Salud (CES), Partners In Health’s sister organization in Mexico, and Heifer International are collaborating on a two-year pilot program that gives 15 chickens to families who have a chronically malnourished child under five. The chickens produce eggs that inject necessary protein into these children's diet. Whatever the families don't eat, they sell for extra cash to buy other nutritious foods they couldn't otherwise afford. One year in, CES and Heifer are seeing positive results. Read More ▸

Haiti Continues to Battle Cholera Outbreak

Haiti is still grappling with a pernicious cholera epidemic nearly five years after the disease's first appearance in the country. Beyond Port-au-Prince and its suburbs, the Artibonite and Centre regions—the hub of operations for Zanmi Lasante, Partners In Health’s sister organization in Haiti—have been among the hardest hit, especially the communities of St. Marc, Mirebalais, Hinche, and Lascahobas. So far, PIH/ZL staff are seeing two or three times as many patients in 2015 as they did over the same period last year. Read More ▸
