Haiti Health Initiative’s first goal is to uncover root causes that contribute to reduced health and persistent poverty in rural Haiti. HHI then uses that knowledge to work alongside the Haitian community and to implement sustainable water treatment projects, improve nutritional opportunities through agricultural expansion, and train local medical and dental providers to facilitate sustainable care for
those in their communities. HHI’s philosophy in working with the Haitians is best summarized by Gordon B. Hinckley’s saying: “Bring all the good you have and let us add to it.” HHI’s aim is to support current healthy living practices and to promote sustainable and culturally appropriate change by working side by side with local international partners.
