Partners in Health/Zanmi Lasante


Partners In Health (PIH) is an international health organization relentlessly committed to improving the health of the poor and marginalized. We build local capacity and work closely with impoverished communities to deliver high-quality health care, address the root causes of illness, train providers, advance research, and advocate for global policy change. Zanmi Lasante (ZL)—Partners In Health in Haitian Creole—is PIH’s flagship project: the oldest, largest, most ambitious, and most replicated. ZL operates clinics and hospitals in a dozen sites across Haiti’s Central Plateau and Lower Artibonite. The organization is the largest nongovernmental healthcare provider in Haiti, serving a catchment area of 1.2 million people, an eighth of the population of Haiti, with a staff of 5,400 Haitians.

The provision of 200 LNG IUS will bolster the existing family planning programs. Before the partnership with the ICA Foundation, PIH/ZL did not have access to IUDs at any sites in Haiti and this donation is a way to increase access to long-acting reversible contraception for the women served.

Hope for Haiti Foundation

Hope for Haiti Foundation, also known as HFHF, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in North Carolina and a licensed Haiti NGO, with volunteers all over the United States and Haiti.

The partnership with the ICA Foundation provides LNG IUS to the main HFHF clinic. Every year women in Haiti suffer unwanted pregnancies, unplanned pregnancies. The also report a significant amount of menorrhagia and dysmenorrhia. The introduction of LNG IUS into this community will address both of these needs. The program includes both community education and provider training. Since 2013, a total of 100 LNG IUS have been provided to the HFHF clinic.
