Ona Ville Community Health Clinic

The Ona Ville Community Clinic is located about an hour outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. It officially opened in September 2015. Prior to opening a permanent site, mobile clinic services were offered. The clinic resides in the townships of Onaville, Canaan, Jerusalem, and Corail. Before the earthquake in 2010, the population in Port-au-Prince was about 20,000. Post-earthquake, it has risen to 200,000. Most of the patients walk to the clinic in order to receive care. Some walk from the mountain region of Bouzie, about 6 hours away. When they arrive, they not only need treatment, but they often need water and food.

Since its inception, over 25,000 patients have been seen in the clinic. Patients are provided with primary health services including prenatal and pediatric care. Specialty programs such as diabetes, hypertension, and wound care are also provided. Basic lab services, EKG, and ultrasound are also available. In the future, we hope to offer vaccination programs and other expanded healthcare services.

The clinic has traditionally been funded by a philanthropist from Texas. This is a charity clinic that operates on a cash budget of roughly $60,000 annually. Some medical supplies and pharmaceuticals are donated as well. Essentially, all patients receive their needed medications from the clinic.

Our first step in the partnership was to contribute about six to eight thousand dollars at retail cost of pharmaceutical drugs. These drugs will allow a significant number of patients to be served over the next six months. We are planning a medical mission trip to support this clinic in February 2020. Our Board has also approved a grant to fund pharmaceutical purchases of $1000 per month for the next quarter.
