COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Response

Health Equity International and St. Boniface Hospital are preparing to treat coronavirus and minimize its spread in southern Haiti.

COVID-19 (coronavirus) is a global pandemic that has spread to more than 100 locations around the world. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses; COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) strain of coronavirus. The virus is easily spread from person-to-person.

St. Boniface Hospital is working together with the Haitian Ministry of Health and healthcare facilities across the South Department to create a plan for treating and mitigating the spread of the disease in our region. It is critical that we share the burden of care to prevent any one healthcare facility from becoming overwhelmed. Our staff are currently working around the clock ensure that we can manage the disease while still providing high-quality care to the more than 600 patients who come to our doors each day.
