Fostering professional and academic medical education opportunities in Haiti.
Health Corps Haiti is a 501-C3 organization formed in 2017, by an advisory board of International Wilderness Medicine experts. Since launching Medical Student Missions in 2010, we have established close ties with the Haitian health department and the local hospital medical director.
Through our relationship with the State University of Haiti, Henry Christophe School of Medicine, Limonade campus, we sponsor and facilitate fundraising, symposiums and continuing medical education, as well as supporting and increasing medical aid infrastructure in Haiti.
