Grace Children's Hospital

Specialist Hospital/Clinic | Port-au-Prince, Haiti

Hospital description

The Grace Children’s Hospital in Haiti is recognised as the leading children’s hospital for the treatment of tuburculosis. It also receives thousands of children each year who have contracted HIV, pneumonia and other serious conditions. The hospital was severely damaged in the 2010 Haitian earthquake, which resulted in several of the hospital buildings needing to be demolished and during 2011 patients were cared for in transitional facilities.

However, despite these condidtions the hospital continues to offer a variety of specialties, some of which have even been able to expand since the earthquake. The hospital continues to provide world-class paediatric care and the staff at the hospital are all Haitian. Whilst this is a specialist paediatric hospital, the outpatients clinics do accommodate adult care

People living in the slums around the hospital receive vaccinations, prenatal care, and other basic health services from specially-trained community health workers and volunteers.
