Uplifting Communities: How Haiti Air Ambulance Supports Haiti’s Healthcare System

August 25, 2023

Haiti, a nation with a rich history and vibrant culture, has faced its fair share of challenges. Among these challenges is the need for a robust healthcare system that can cater to its 11.4 million residents. Enter Haiti Air Ambulance (HAA), a beacon of hope in these trying times. Our non-profit organization has been instrumental in transforming the healthcare landscape of Haiti, ensuring that medical aid reaches even the most remote corners of the country.

A Lifeline in Times of Need

Haiti Air Ambulance is not just any air ambulance service. It is the only helicopter air ambulance service dedicated to serving the entire Haitian population, regardless of their financial capabilities. Our mission is clear: to uplift the Haitian community in every possible aspect–medically, economically, environmentally, and socially. Our life-saving services have been a ray of hope for many, especially during emergencies.

Making a Difference Every Single Day

The impact of HAA is evident in the numbers:

  • Over 2,000 patients have benefited from our transport, triage, and treatment services.
  • 126 rural clinics and major hospitals rely on HAA for patient transport.
  • Thousands of patients have been treated by HAA staff and partner doctors at over 200 landing sites.
  • We have delivered 60,000 COVID-19 vaccines and essential medical supplies.
  • Annually, 600 first aid courses are conducted for medical personnel and our communities.

Beyond Air Ambulance Services

While our primary service revolves around emergency air ambulance services, HAA’s contributions extend far beyond. We play a pivotal role in critical maternal and perinatal care, ensuring that pregnant women and newborns receive the care they deserve. We are at the forefront during humanitarian crises, be it hurricanes, earthquakes, or epidemics, providing timely aid and emergency response relief.

Addressing the Healthcare Worker Shortage

One of the pressing issues in Haiti’s healthcare system is the shortage of healthcare professionals. HAA is actively addressing this gap by training and employing healthcare professionals and bolstering the country’s medical workforce.

The Journey to Medical Care in Haiti

It’s worth noting the challenges many Haitians face when seeking medical care. In some areas, a trip to a medical facility can be grueling, lasting up to 12 hours. But with HAA’s services, this travel time is drastically reduced to a mere 24 minutes, making a world of difference in emergency situations.
