In Creole they say “Lasante se pi gwo richès” – “Health is the greatest wealth”.

According to the WHO, there is only one doctor per 4000 people in Haiti. Health may be the greatest wealth, but lack of access to health care makes that wealth hard to secure.

Things that we may take for granted in the U.S. are not always available in rural Haiti. People die of strokes because they suffer from very manageable hypertension. Women and their babies are at greater risk during pregnancy, birth, and the first years of life. And even if someone manages to see a visiting doctor, they might miss the true illness because of lack of relationship with the patient over time.

But things are changing in Jeannette! Because of generous funding over the last few years, Dr. Elie St. Martin serves the clinic in Jeannette for 10 days each month. Quality of care is increasing as Dr. St. Martin supports the clinic nurses and health care workers.
