Social Media Intern - Care 2 Communities

ABOUT CARE 2 COMMUNITIES (C2C):

 

Haiti is the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation, suffering from a chronic cycle of economic, social, and governance crises. Haiti’s infant and maternal mortality rates remain stubbornly high and life expectancy is the lowest in Latin America and the Caribbean. In a country where 1 in 14 children will die before the age of 5 and access to healthcare is extremely challenging, innovative solutions are urgently needed.

Care 2 Communities (C2C) has created a scalable model for sustainable, high-quality, community-based primary healthcare in Haiti. Our care model meets the health needs of poor and low-income families, delivering high-quality, low-cost primary care, maternal health, and malnutrition services. C2C’s first community clinic opened in 2013 and we currently operate a network of 7 clinics (with plans for significant expansion), which serves over 50,000 people every year.

C2C’s network of clinics, through a public private partnership (PPP) with the Haitian Ministry of Health, offers care at efficient ‘one-stop-shop’ facilities (pharmaceuticals, lab tests, and doctor/nurse consultations all in one place). We believe that community clinics can and should be efficient, responsive, and cost-effective. C2C clinics employ local clinicians and are maintained by local supply chains. While philanthropy covers initial start-up costs of new clinics, affordable patient fees help cover clinic costs moving forward. Each C2C clinic is staffed by a team of talented Haitian physicians, nurses, lab techs, and health workers; we have over 90 staff members in Haiti delivering care at clinic sites and health education and social support at the community level.
