Maternal, Neonatal & Child Health

Haiti has the highest rates of maternal mortality and child death before age 5 in the western hemisphere. SBH's Maternal, Neonatal, and Child Health (MNCH) programs are working to change those statistics.

The MNCH program at St. Boniface Hospital addresses a critical need for improved healthcare for mothers and their children in Haiti. Our center provides the only accessible and affordable care for high-risk pregnancies—including emergency obstetrical surgery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)—in southern Haiti. Because of our reputation for delivering high-quality, affordable care, women and their families come from hours away to be treated by our staff.

Maternal Health

In a region where three-quarters of women give birth at home without the benefit of a skilled birth attendant, Health Equity International places a high priority on increasing access to obstetric care.


St. Boniface Hospital has the only functioning NICU on the southern peninsula, serving a population of 2.3 million people.

Pediatric Care

St. Boniface Hospital provides a wide range of health services to children, including primary care, emergency medicine, surgery, and treatment for malnutrition.
