VHF was founded in 1999 with a mission to provide competent and compassionate healthcare to the people of southwest Haiti and to empower them with resources to pursue their basic right to health and health education.
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. The average income per capita for their nearly 10 million people is $250 U.S./year.
This poverty contributes to Haiti's endemic nutritional deficiencies, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, bacterial and protozoal dysenteries, and malaria.
