The project also aimed to improve the healthcare system by establishing a prototype that could be reproduced throughout the country’s regional departments.
Planning covered the following services spread among 12 operating units: medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and obstetrics, surgery, ORL and ophthalmology, emergency, intensive care, the operating suite, odontology, social assistance and psychosocial support, and physiotherapy. The laboratories were designed according to the standards of the Laboratoire National du Batiment et des Travaux Publics d’Haïti.
