JP/HRO’S MEDICAL PROGRAM
J/P HRO’S HAITIAN MEDICAL STAFF IS NEARLY 100 STRONG

J/P HRO medical program started with 30 international volunteers providing emergency medical care in the streets of Port-au-Prince in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake. Today, two clinics-J/P 1 and J/P 2-continue to see and treat nearly 9,000 patients every month with an entirely Haitian staff of medical professionals. They are saving lives daily and improving community health among an underserved population, where healthcare is often beyond financial reach for many.

J/P HRO's Haitian medical staff is nearly 100 strong and includes doctors, nurses, midwives, dentists, emergency care providers, x-ray technicians and ancillary staff members.

COMMUNITY HEALTH

J/P HRO is one of the leading medical service providers for residents of Delmas 32, home to 90,000 people, as well as nearby communities in the Port-au-Prince area.

The program leads public health campaigns on hand-washing, child vaccination, and nutrition for mothers and young children. Our community health agents go door-to-door, engaging small groups in the community to plan and execute education campaigns. The team members take the time to understand deeply the well-being of those we serve, and to work to put as much ownership and responsibility as possible in the hands of patients.

WOMEN'S HEALTH

According to the United Nations and other international agencies, a brighter, more prosperous future for the developing world begins with the promotion of healthy and informed mothers. The Medical Program oversees a comprehensive Women's Health Clinic, offering family planning services, gynecologic examinations, and pre-natal and post-natal care. J/P HRO staff delivers 38 babies a month. We are especially proud to report our 0% maternal mortality rate

DENTAL

Our dental clinic houses the most state of the art equipment in the nation. Our dental staff is not only trained how to perform modern procedures, but in how to teach others to do this same. This is a path toward elevating dental standards more widely in Haiti and bringing brighter smiles to children and adults every day.

PSYCHO-SOCIAL

Part of a holistic approach to health care includes the incorporation of mental health care. In post-disaster zones, a significant number of the patients suffer not only from psychological trauma and subsequent mental health conditions, but with symptoms that are actually physiological expressions of trauma such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Often, there is a lack of awareness and understanding among doctors and patients towards the psychological causes of symptoms. J/P HRO and its partners seek to address these issues in a comprehensive and sustainable manner, through training workshops in basic mental health for its medical staff, seminars, and on the job supervision and guidance.

OUR FACILITIES

The clinics offer general practice medicine, x-ray and ultrasound services, vaccinations, HIV/AIDS and other STD testing, AIDS counseling and referral for follow-up treatment. J/P HRO operates specialized services to specifically address the chronic diseases that are common in Haiti, such as hypertension and diabetes. Patients with complications that cannot be treated on-site are referred and transferred by ambulance to a nearby hospital in Port-au-Prince for specialized care. Both clinics also house a full-service pharmacy, which is free-of-charge to patients.

WE ARE ONE

Haiti was singled out as a country of people who are unwanted and we just marked eight years since over 250,000 of our Haitians neighbors lost their lives.

For this reason, and so many others, we are taking a moment to share the Haiti we know and love. The Haiti filled with neighbors, friends, co-workers, brothers and sisters who, with their bare hands, pulled each other out of rubble and carried each other to safety. It is the Haiti of our 200 Haitian staff, working tirelessly every day to work with communities to provide medical care to infants and children while also promoting public health to tens of thousands; where our teachers provide young boys and girls a genuine opportunity to succeed. We know a Haiti that has been hit harder and more often by everything mother nature has to offer, and yet continues with a resiliency you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere else; where the all-Haitian J/P HRO emergency response team to Hurricane Matthew, which devastated Haiti's South, helped 25,000 people return to a safe, dry home.

At J/P HRO we have always refused to blindly follow what has always been done. All of J/P HRO successes are guided by the people in Haiti themselves, by getting down to the ground level to do things with and in support of Haitians.

With time, Haiti will become more integral to the global economy. This is change that you will be able to see, touch, taste and wear. This will be no small feat, but J/P HRO is no stranger to challenging the status quo and persevering in the face of long odds. It's where we began and it's time to go back to what started this organization. We are not complacent. We are not okay with "good," or even "great." We are J/P HRO, and we want to keep doing the impossible.

Haiti is not looking for a handout. This great country will not be defined by an earthquake, hurricane or poverty. Instead, Haiti's difficult history will be overcome by the will of its people and with the attention and support of a compassionate world.

Today more than ever, we must stand in solidarity with the people of Haiti. Please help us show them they are in our thoughts and hearts.
