New Health Centre in Capotille, near Ouanaminthe, Haiti

Several years ago, Haitians living in the northeastern area who didn't have access to health care or money for hospitals and medicines were forced to travel to the neighboring Dominican Republic to be treated and cared for. A new health center has been built in Capotille, near Ouanaminthe.


Providing sufficient health care for almost ten million Haitians is one of the biggest problems the Martelly administration is currently trying to work. Health care is a human need and is every citizen's right.

The Ouanaminthe's municipality of Capotille in the North East Department has been one of the sites where a new health center has been built. It was formally opened in July by the Minister of Public Health and Population (MSPP) Dr. Florence D. Guillaume and was built with a mere $8 million budget. The new Capotille Health Center is part of President Michel Martelly, First Lady Sophia Martelly, and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe vision of providing a health facility in every communal section of Haiti in order to ensure the welfare of all Haitians. The health center will be able to provide health care to about 18,000 residents and will be given more medical supplies, equipment, and medical professionals for better service and a wider reach.

In addition, a Sanitary Departmental Directorate is on the works and is expected to be completed by March 2013 in the city of Fort-Liberté, also in the North East Department. Minister Guillaume has also been able to visit the city's Fort-Liberté that is in poor condition and has promised rebuilt it. More health care projects are on the works for improving the welfare of Haitians.
