About Konbit Sante:

Konbit Sante Cap-Haitien Health Partnership is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation founded in the state of Maine. Since 2001, we have supported the development of a sustainable health system that meets the needs of the community in and near Cap-Haitien, the second-largest city in Haiti and a sister city to Portland, Maine. We view our Hatian colleagues as full and capable partners, and that by putting our heads together (tèt ansanm), we can make more progress than any of us working alone. Konbit Sante works directly with four Haitian health facilities: two hospitals and two health clinics. Together, these institutions provide care to over 300,000 people in greater Cap-Haitien.
