In Brief

  • Since March 2013, Partners in Health clinicians have provided specialized care to thousands of patients.
  • The W.K. Kellogg Foundation provided Partners in Health a $1 million grant from 2016-2018 to construct and operate a maternity house at the Mirebalais University Hospital to improve infant and maternal care and reduce infant and maternal mortality in Haiti.
  • The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is committed to ensuring that children in Haiti have opportunities to thrive and to achieve success as individuals and as contributors to the larger community and society.

Why This Matters

Partners in Health is a W.K. Kellogg Foundation grantee working to improve infant and maternal care and reduce infant and maternal mortality in Haiti. Through comprehensive clinical services, production of ready-to-use therapeutic food, data collection and early identification of high-risk pregnancies, Partners in Health is helping more children and families in Haiti thrive.

At the Foundation, we are saddened by the escalating economic, political and social strains experienced by families in Haiti. Read our March 2019 statement reaffirming our commitment to ensuring children and families have access to quality education, quality infant and maternal care and income generating activities that will make them more financially secure.
