Haiti: Training a New Generation of Family Physicians

When it launched in 2011, the St. Marc family medicine residency was PIH’s first formal training program for medical specialists in Haiti, made possible through a partnership with sister organization Zanmi Lasante, Haiti’s national medical school, and the Ministry of Health. The first six residents finished their three-year program in December; and five are now working part- or full-time as attending physicians or mentors for residents within the PIH/ZL network. Another 16 family medicine residents are now training at St. Marc's Hôpital St. Nicolas. Read More ▸

Community Health Workers: Making House Calls

Community health workers are central to our work. Every day, they make house calls, traveling many miles to see patients in their homes. They ensure patients have medication and they guide them through the difficulties of illness and treatment. Health workers embody PIH's ethos to support patients however we can to help them get well.
