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 11,000 inhabitants.

In addition to basic healthcare, the clinic:

  • Treats children suffering from acute and moderate malnutrition; in 2017, 223 malnourished children have been cured by Nutrition Services,
  • Treats cholera cases; in 2017, 150 cases of cholera required treatment, a number of case due to an intense rainy season. More than 1,700 cholera treatments have been provided since 2011.
  • Conducts malaria screenings; in 2017, 1,026 tests were performed,
  • Supports and cares for pregnant and nursing women; in 2017, an average of 150 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 medical exams and basic essential medication.
