The healthcare programs of NPH Haiti are motivated by the gospel command to care for the sick and strive to offset the injustices of poverty which make healthcare inaccessible for many people. Poverty imposes a tremendous burden of sickness and suffering on children. As part of NPH, St. Damien Pediatric Hospital offers any child in need quality and dignified healthcare. St. Damien always seeks to include parent participation through ongoing dialogue, on-site education and the encouragement of material support.
Has the capacity to do many essential tests, including malaria blood smears, HIV, and sickle cell. On average, about 1,500 hematologic exams and more than 4,000 bacteriological exams are conducted monthly.
Supplies drugs, medical supplies, and items to the patient rooms and out-patients. While some essential drugs are produced and purchased in Haiti, most medications and supplies are imported from Action Medeor, a specialist supplier for charities in Germany. The hospital pharmacy team receives supervision, support and training from an international volunteer pharmacist from Germany through communication and annual visits.
Provides standard pediatrics vaccinations to all hospital patients, and provides out-patient public health programs (including HIV) to over 20,000 people yearly.
Available to children and adults Monday through Friday.
Please help save children’s lives.
