Development through healthcare.

Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere and continues to suffer from glaring inequalities. Half the population has no access to formal health care because of the financial barriers created by the direct payment system at the point of delivery. Most rural areas have no access to health care, making residents susceptible to otherwise treatable diseases. Based on these facts and at the request of the community from Anse-à-Veau, Haiti, the Haitian Sports Foundation (HSF) has built a medical clinic to provide basic preventive care to diagnose and treat fevers, elevated blood pressure, diminishing eyesight, diabetes and burns to the Nippes population.

There are 25 physicians and 11 nurses per 100,000 population.

 Only one-fourth of births are attended by a skilled health professional.

Haiti spends about US $83.00 annually on health care. 

Approximately 75 % of Haitians live on less than US $2.50 a day.

BUILDING THE FUTURE

When HSF launched its Clinic on May 3, 2019,  a total of 87 patients were seen and treated, which included infants to the elderly. Once a month (soon to be twice a month) the clinic is available and in spite of a limited staff the number of patients has increased from 87 to 107 as of February 2020.

Haitian Sports Foundation (HSF), a 501(c) (3) non- profit organization in the USA and a registered non- governmental organization (NGO) in Haiti, statistics indicate the lives of its children in the communities of Anse-à-Veau, Haiti have improved since its founding in 2006.   In the past 5 years, a total of 125 children ages 8 to 16 have participated in our program, without evidence of any child or adolescent becoming delinquent or a danger to society. This success assisted the Mayor’s Office of Anse-à-Veau’s decision to donate 2 acres of land to build a complex.  HSF has used part of the complex to improve education by building classrooms, a computer lab to improve the literacy skills of the children. We are currently building a trade school and we urge each one of you to join us in our mission in continuing to make a difference.
