MEDICAL CLINIC HAITI

David Vanderpool, MD, founder and CEO of Mobile Medical Disaster Relief (MMDR), quickly mobilized a medical team upon hearing the news of the earthquake. The team headed to Haiti on January 14, 2010, helped set up a large hospital, and delivered life-saving medical care to those who were devastated by the earthquake. MMDR is a 501(C)(3) humanitarian organization that provides basic goods and medical services to the poor of this world through the building and/or funding of medical clinics or hospitals. MMDR also implements micro-enterprise projects, provides clean water initiatives, and develops vocational schools. In large scale disasters we provide “first responder� medical and logistical support. We are presently in fourteen world-wide locations including Haiti, Honduras, Mozambique, Nigeria, India, China, Ukraine, Iraq, Kenya, Gaza, Peru, Guatemala, and the United States. MMDR is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of business and civic leaders who are active in the ongoing work of the organization.

DEFINING THE SITUATION

Healthcare is a subject that is presently at the forefront of basic needs in Haiti. The earthquake in Haiti which occurred on January 12, 2010 killed 300,000 and injured 3,000,000. Over 60% of all medical facilities were badly damaged or destroyed by the earthquake. Post earthquake efforts show promise of delivering a healthcare system in Haiti that has the ability to be far better than before the disaster. Organizations like Mobile Medical Disaster Relief recognize the need for permanent primary care clinics staffed by Haitian nurses and doctors. We are searching for clinic locations that are distanced from existing primary care medical facilities. We will build, supply, and staff medical clinics that will improve Haitians! health and will spare lives by providing healthcare in close proximity to their homes.


MEDICAL CLINIC HAITI

MMDR’S GOAL We propose that Haitian populations that lack mobility and are without access to healthcare require basic medical intervention locally. Additionally, Haitians who live in abject poverty, making them more likely to contract a preventable disease, have a high risk of mortality because of lack of access to healthcare. MMDR!s goal is to provide medically necessary care to these populations. MMDR has had great success with medical clinics we have built in fourteen countries globally that presently treat hundreds of thousands of patients yearly. Our clinics are launched into a sustainable state after about five years of MMDR assistance. Our ability to fulfill this need in Haiti is well established. MMDR plans to utilize these same successful clinic establishment patterns to build and supply clinic(s) in Haiti. We will partner with an area church or NGO to hire construction workers and locate local or missionary physicians and nurses to staff the clinic full time. Utilizing Haitian workers will stimulate the local economy. MMDR will supply the clinic with all needed equipment and supplies, and will continue to supply necessary medicines for five years. We will take medical teams to the clinic on a regular basis to supplement the local nurses! and physicians! efforts. MMDR will help train the local staff regarding excellent healthcare delivery as well as clinical operations and logistics. Our goal is to help the clinic become self sustaining in five years.


MEDICAL CLINIC HAITI ...METHODOLOGY

• MMDR has already begun locating areas in Haiti where high numbers of earthquake victims from the Port-au-Prince area have fled, where medical care is more than 50 miles away, and where local leaders have voiced a dire need for primary healthcare. •MMDR will partner with a well-established local church or NGO to find a clinic location, and to assist us in the hiring of workers and healthcare professionals who will be involved in the planning and organization of the clinic. •The clinic floor plan is complete and attached. Upon funding, MMDR will hire a project manager and workers to construct the clinic. Approximate time of completion is estimated at six to eight months. •MMDR!s International Projects Manager will be on site daily to assure project efficacy. •During construction, our partners will seek trained and licensed medical personnel. MMDR!s Medical Director and Nursing Director will conduct initial and ongoing training of medical personnel. •When the clinic is near completion, medical supplies, equipment, and medications will be shipped to the clinic. •MMDR will work with the clinic staff toward a goal of independence and sustainability. • MMDR will bring medical teams to the clinic regularly to supplement the local medical staff. Assessment of operations will be conducted during the team visits.

IN SUMMARY

In short, much needs to be done in Haiti to assure a developed health care system is in place that will truly serve needs of a chronic and primary nature. Thousands of Haitians die annually from easily preventable diseases. If health care is available to Haitians in remote areas where many have fled for protection, and where people can easily access medical help, thousands of lives can be easily saved. MMDR would like to begin with one clinic, and expand into other areas as needs are targeted. MMDR is playing a critical role in the development of a health care system in Haiti that will be able to boast saved lives, excellence in primary care, (including mother/child health), immunization delivery, patient education, and other pivotal health issues. With our help, Haiti can begin to move from developing country health care status to one of accessibility and distinction. Most importantly, many lives will be saved.
