Our Strategic Plan
HAS aims to exceed international standards for the reduction of illness and premature death through a focus on integrated family health care. To do so, we will:
- Increase maternal and early childhood survival by emphasizing the first 1,000 days of a child’s life to:
- Reduce neonatal mortality;
- Reduce complications of pregnancy;
- Reduce severe acute malnutrition;
- Fully vaccinate 90% of children.
- Reduce disability and death due to traumatic injuries.
- Improve continuity of care and capacity across the full spectrum of HAS services – from our network of field clinics and hospital to our community educational, environmental and ecological outreach programs.
- Promote public health through economic and infrastructure development programs, particularly in the areas of clean drinking water, sanitation, and agricultural initiatives.
- Ensure equitable access to health care for the most vulnerable populations, regardless of location within the district or ability to pay.
- Establish measurable objectives for each of the above goals, supported by mechanisms to evaluate outcomes and adjust programs.
In pursuit of its aspirations, HAS must:
- Attract, train and retain qualified Haitian professional staff.
- While sustaining our role as a referral hospital, collaborate with other Haitian and international organizations – government and private – in the development of preventive and curative programs, policies and practices.
- Update the demographic and service quality data for the primary service area.
- Evaluate the benefits of establishing a Haitian NGO to enhance local engagement in the fulfillment of the HAS mission.
- Upgrade and ensure consistency of staff training.
- Grow and sustain philanthropic and grant income coupled with sound long-term investments.
To maintain services at their highest levels, HAS must renovate and replace where necessary the basic supporting infrastructures and exploit new technologies, including:
- Refurbish, renovate and expand the physical facilities and campus to accommodate patient needs and staff accommodations:
- Maximize our energy infrastructure by incorporating the best in affordable, efficient technologies.
- Modernize aging sanitation and sewage systems.
- Ensure the security of all facilities by upgrading our security systems.
- Upgrade out-of-date telecommunications and information technology systems to maximize efficiency and resources.
In our journey to a self-sustaining Haiti, HAS ensures its own sustainability through improvements to five interconnected operational areas.
