This project would also benefit other regional communities like Bercy, Cassignol, Berette, Mission and Mapangue.

  • Medical Education Cooperation with Cuba (MEDICC)

    MEDICC is a non-profit organization working to enhance cooperation among the U.S., Cuban and global health communities aimed at better health outcomes. Founded in 1997, their experience taught them that health care in the United States and developing countries – especially for underserved populations – can be informed by Cuba’s singular and evolving health practices, research and policies. MEDICC also sees that the US experience in medicine and medical research can also inform practice in Cuba and the developing world. Thus, they believe that such cooperation is urgently needed to radically improve global health and achieve the birthright of health for all worldwide.

    MEDICC’s mission is to support education and development of human resources in health committed to equitable access and quality care, and to provide the Cuban experience to inform global debate, practice, policies and cooperation in health.

  • Haiti: MSF Inaugurates New Emergency Obstetric Care Hospital

    Source: Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières August 30, 2011

    On August 18, the medical humanitarian aid organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) officially inaugurated its new specialized emergency obstetric care hospital in the Delmas neighborhood of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

    The hospital is called CRUO – Centre de Référence en Urgences Obstétricales (Referral Center for Obstetric Emergencies). The facility began treating patients in March of this year. MSF built CRUO following the destruction of its previous emergency obstetric care hospital, Maternité Solidarité, in the January 2010 earthquake.

    The new 122-bed facility provides 24-hour free care for women who are experiencing a range of serious, often life-threatening complications in their pregnancies. These include conditions like pre-eclampsia and eclampsia, obstetric hemorrhage, and uterine rupture. Read more.

    On Monday afternoon, August 15, an amalgam of partners gathered in St. Marc – a city in Haiti’s lower Artibonite – to lunch and informally celebrate the launch of the new Family Residency and Nursing Professional Development Programs. As recently posted, Partners In Health/Zanmi Lasante (PIH/ZL) are new grant recipients from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. This grant will support a new program for family practice medical residents in St Marc, a critically important specialty in Haiti, and education for auxiliary nurses at St. Nicholas Hospital, also located in St. Marc.

    There is a very big difference between learning medicine in a hospital or university setting in Port-au-Prince and going out to communities to see what they need,” said Benjamin Jean Michel, a medical resident at ZL. “This is the first time we have been able to do that and have learned so much. We hope to be the generation of doctors that understands what social medicine is and how to address the social determinants of health. Read more.
