Funding

Clinical and Public Health Curriculum Development, Training and Information Systems Support for the Haiti Health Care System under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

Description
Grant Amount: Approximate Current Fiscal Year Funding: $5,000,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $30,000,000.

Haiti has the highest population rates of HIV, TB, Cholera, and Lymphatic Filariasis in the Caribbean region, coupled with shortages of adequately trained public health professionals and public health information systems.

The goal and objectives of the program in Haiti is to support the Haitian Ministry of Health (MSPP) to improve health information systems for more effective data management; improve surveillance systems; assist with appropriate curriculum development for prevention, treatment, and care of infectious disease or other public health concerns; and provide appropriate mentoring in clinical settings. The goal is to reduce morbidity and mortality across a range of infectious diseases, but mainly cholera, HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria, and for maternal child health outcomes:
Reform and strengthen the laboratory sector in Haiti by supporting human resources capacity building at medical technology schools, health facilities, national laboratory associations, and the national laboratory;
Provide clinical mentoring of healthcare providers at five public hospitals to scale up and improve quality of adult care and treatment services for HIV/AIDS, cholera, TB, malaria and obstetrical services;
Develop, refine, and support a coordinated expansion of three national electronic health information systems including, iSantè (electronic medical record system), OpenELIS (open-source electronic laboratory information system), and TrainSMART (electronic training database) and other databases used to support surveillance in Haiti;
Develop and strengthen HIV/AIDS, enteric disease, nutrition and other public health curricula and faculty development at public and private nursing, medical, and laboratory schools. Develop curricula and conduct trainings for health care providers.

The purpose of this FOA is to work within Haiti to improve public health and medical curricula for pre-service training, provide clinical mentoring in health at facilities, and to develop, refine, and assist in the implementation of information systems to support health and disease surveillance in Haiti.
