Health Care Development Association (HCD) is a non-profit association, which aims to improve the health conditions of Haitians in communities on the southern Coast of Haiti.
Making it Happen
Our project is focused on providing medical assistance to Haitian communities in the Nippes region of southern Haiti. We will concentrate on the town of Le Rois, which presently has no medical care for its citizens. Many people in this province suffer from cholera, malaria, hypertension, and diabetes. They do not even have access to health centers in nearby towns, which contributes to the poor health conditions in this community. Our project’s goal will be to help these populations address this lack of basic health care, and focus on treating cholera and malaria which have risen in incidence since Hurricane Matthew struck Haiti in 2016.
Our vision is to treat and prevent the outbreaks that occur in remote areas of Haiti. To achieve our goal, we will act in solidarity with disadvantaged Haitians by providing medical supplies and information that can improve the health conditions in rural communities.
What inspired us to start this project is the health situation in disadvantaged areas of southern Haiti. During the many visits Kathleen made to these regions while living in Haiti, she became aware of the acute health care needs of the people living in these regions and decided to take action to remedy the situation.

Humanitarian Social Innovations & Health Care Development Association
Social entrepreneurs Carlet Auguste and Kathleen Janvier first contacted HSI in the wake of Hurricane Matthew which hit their homeland Haiti in fall of 2016. Wanting to leverage their medical knowhow and Haitian connections to aid in the growing cholera crisis, Carlet and Kathleen applied for and received fiscal sponsorship in HSI’s Acceleration: Do Something! program in January of 2017.
Humanitarian Social Innovations treats funds received for the purpose of this project as restricted under the charitable trust doctrine. All funds, minus administrative fees, are dedicated to the purpose of this project and will not be used to pay the expenses of another.
