THE BAILLE TOURIBLE HEALTH CLINIC

KANPE has partnered with Zanmi Lasante (Partners in Health) to support access to healthcare by eliminating financial barriers in vulnerable communities. In 2011, we set up a clinic in Baille Tourible. Before that, the nearest clinic was 6 hours away on foot. This clinic serves more than 10,000 inhabitants for free.

In addition to basic healthcare, the clinic:

  • Treats children suffering from acute and moderate malnutrition; in 2016, 138 treatments were given monthly to malnourished children,
  • Treats cholera cases; in 2016, 114 cases of cholera required treatment, a number of case due to an intense rainy season. More than 1,500 cholera treatments have been provided since 2011.
  • Conducts malaria screenings; in 2016, 1,120 tests were performed,
  • Supports and cares for pregnant and nursing women; in 2016 97 consultations per month were provided,
  • Educates women on the subject of family planning,
  • Offers health education and training for personal hygiene, environmental hygiene, childcare and HIV/STD/STI education,
  • Supplies patients free medical exams and basic essential medication.
