About HAS Haiti
Over the past six decades, HAS Haiti has weathered public health crises, epidemics, natural disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes, and political instability—setbacks that have repeatedly challenged the hospital’s staff, resources, and infrastructure. In 2014, HAS still must generate its own electricity, treat and process its own water, operate and maintain vehicles that deliver medicines and supplies, and manage a busy and complex hospital—all without any nearby modern infrastructure.
While much has changed in the past 70 years, the philosophy of HAS—to care for those who are most in need with dignity, compassion, and respect—has never wavered. Fully embedded in its community, HAS Haiti continues to be a model for effective, efficient, and compassionate healthcare delivery in a challenged setting.

HAS Haiti aims to exceed international standards for the reduction of illness and premature death through a focus on integrated family health care. To do so, we aim at:
- Increase maternal and early childhood survival by emphasizing the first 1,000 days of a child’s life to:
- Reduce neonatal mortality;
- Reduce complications of pregnancy;
- Reduce severe acute malnutrition;
- Fully vaccinate 90% of children.
- Reduce disability and death due to traumatic injuries.
- Improve continuity of care and capacity across the full spectrum of HAS services – from our network of field clinics and hospital to our community educational, environmental and ecological outreach programs.
- Promote public health through economic and infrastructure development programs, particularly in the areas of clean drinking water, sanitation, and agricultural initiatives.
- Ensure equitable access to health care for the most vulnerable populations, regardless of location within the district or ability to pay.
- Establish measurable objectives for each of the above goals, supported by mechanisms to evaluate outcomes and adjust programs.
