Reduce the mortality rate among pregnant women, newborns, and children under the age of five.
Provide obstetric, neonatology and pediatric services that meet the quality standards set by Haiti’s Ministry of Public Health and Population.
Better health care for Haiti’s people
After the 2010 earthquake, the LÉGER FOUNDATION actively worked to rehabilitate health centers in Haiti. This rehabilitation changed the lives of many Haitians. However, the massive withdrawal of international non-governmental emergency aid organizations from the region and the growing community demand for maternal and child health care mean that the health care institutions must improve their services to meet the critical needs of the local population.
For the well-being of mothers and children
The maternal and child health project in Léogâne and Gressier is part of the LÉGER FOUNDATION’s new action strategy and meets two priorities for maternal, newborn and child health defined by the Canadian government, namely to strengthen health networks and reduce the burden of diseases that severely impact mothers and young children. The project’s goal is to reduce the mortality rate among pregnant women, newborns, and children under the age of five and to provide direct aid to over 30,000 people in these two densely populated communes. This project aims to bring people together to improve the well-being of mothers and children in this region with Haiti’s highest infant mortality rates.
