See Our Impact
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, University Hospital 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.

Dave, 10, Returns to School, Continues His Journey
After spending nearly a year in Boston receiving medical care through PIH's Right to Health Care program, David and his father, Louisphanor, returned to Haiti on November 30, 2010. Though the transition back has been difficult at times, David is enrolled in school and doing his best to fit in.
In this clip, documentarians Brent and Craig Renaud follow David as he completes treatment and rehabilitation in Boston, and as he accustoms to life in Haiti after returning from the US. We watch as he participates in a classroom exercise, gathers water, and plays in the yard outside his family's home.
David's personality and energy had a tremendous impact on everyone who worked with him in Boston. While we will miss seeing him here, Partners In Health staff in Haiti will continue to support and care for David for the rest of his life, providing new prosthetics, medical care, and social support.
Since January 2010, the award-winning Renaud brothers have been in and out of Haiti. While much of that time has been spent reporting for the New York Times, documenting the effects of the earthquake in Haiti, the brothers have also been following the progress of Dave, and various other Right to Health Care patients.
