Our Work > Where We Work > Haiti
Latin America & Caribbean
MSH has been working in Haiti since 1980 and today continues to help Haitians at all levels of the health system develop effective and efficient ways to address the needs of the Haitian people. MSH Haiti staff members, most of whom are Haitian, work in all ten geo-administrative units of the country. Our work in Haiti focuses on building the capacity of local NGOs and the Government of Haiti to deliver improved health services. We improve the capacity of local partners to lead, manage, and govern their organizations efficiently and effectively to improve organizational sustainability and enhance health services and outcomes. Our activities range from strengthening the leadership and management skills of Haiti’s Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP) to delivering quality family planning services to training local NGOs on human resource management, information systems, performance-based financing and supply chain management.
