J/P HRO is the leading medical service provider for residents of Delmas 32, and the surrounding Port‐au‐Prince area. The medical team works out of two clinics, both of them located in neighborhoods adjacent to the two J/P HRO managed camps. These facilities offer free access to healthcare and promote sustainable health habits in the community.
J/P HRO’s 100% Haitian medical staff treats an average of 2,000 patients per week for primary care and urgent conditions. The medical staff is fully prepared to treat most walk-in cases, including general practice medicine, x-ray, ultrasound, HIV/AIDs and syphilis testing, counseling and referral for treatment. J/P also runs clinics for chronic diseases that are common in Haiti, such as hypertension and diabetes. Complex cases that cannot be treated on site are transferred by ambulance to hospitals of reference in Port‐au‐Prince. Both clinics are also home to a full-service pharmacy free of charge to patients.
The Medical program oversees a comprehensive woman’s health clinic with family planning, hygiene, and pre‐natal care and education, and gynecologic examination. J/P also has a maternity care unit that has delivered approximately 1,300 healthy babies with zero infant mortality cases over the past two years.
J/P HRO’s Medical program believes strongly in ongoing medical education. Medical program managers work with medical volunteers and partner organizations to continue the professional development of the Haitian medical staff. The Medical team also directs community health agents that share public health training and messaging throughout the camps and surrounding areas by promoting positive health behaviors and improving knowledge at the household level.
