Our key strategies

PRISMA 2 addresses maternal mortality rates in Haiti’s Artibonite department, an area with the highest neonatal, infant, child, and maternal mortality rates in the Western Hemisphere. The project, which is currently in the design phase, tackles the lack of continuous access to safe water, adequate sanitation services, and health care waste management/disposal facilities in Artibonite’s health facilities.

Working in 8 of the 15 Artibonite communes, PRISMA 2 strengthens the Artibonite department’s health governance, improves institutional emergency obstetric and neonatal care, and promotes community health initiatives to increase coverage for sexual and reproductive health services, and quality of care for mothers, newborns, and children. The health facilities this project supports will provide health services to approximately 150,000 women of reproductive age, 20,000 youth, and 68,000 children.
