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 11,000 inhabitants.

In addition to basic healthcare, the clinic:

  • Treats children suffering from acute and moderate malnutrition. As of june 30th, 117  malnourished children have been cured by Nutrition Services,
  • Treats cholera cases. More than 1,700 cholera treatments have been provided since 2011. In 2019, following a trend observed since 2018, no cases of cholera were reported. As of June 30, 2019, Baille Tourible was free of cholera for 18 months.
  • Conducts malaria screenings. This year 518 malaria tests are performed so far.
  • Supports and cares for pregnant and nursing women. An average of 127 consultations/month are provided to pregnant women.
  • Educates women on the subject of family planning.
