The Savanette clinic is the furthest clinic site from our
headquarters in Cap-Haitien by approximately 3
hours. It has a population of 30,657 people. The
public clinic was originally closed for 3 years and the
community is very happy to have a high-quality
clinic close to home.
The Cité Chauvel clinic is our busiest clinic, located in
the only peri-urban community we serve, near Cap-
Haitien (Haiti’s “second city”). Residents of the
community do have access to other health care
options, but they like that our clinic offers them low-
cost, high-quality primary care all in one location.
C2C was first founded by Elizabeth Sheehan as a relief
organization in response to Haiti's devastating
earthquake. At the time, our containerized clinic model
served over 40,000 people in Port-au-Prince until 2013,
on the grounds of a local hospital that had lost more
than 80% of its infrastructure in the destruction.
After our partnership with the hospital was completed,
we deployed our innovative clinic facility to the
community of Acul du Nord. Thanks to a dedicated
group of Holy Cross Alumni, the clinic opened its doors
and currently serves a community of 50,000 people. In
addition to primary care services, we also provide
maternal health services at this clinic.
We formalized a public-private partnership with the
government of Haiti to rehabilitate underperforming
public clinics and to enhance patient outcomes by
improving the infrastructure, service quality, and
operational excellence of these existing clinics.
We launched this partnership by rehabilitating the
Sinek clinic, located in the community of Bas-Limbé,
and opened another clinic months later in the
community of Bayeux. It was successful start to the
partnership, leading the way to replicate this model
We opened the newest clinic of the C2C network
through our partnership with Haiti's government in
Roche Plate. This public clinic is the only health care
option in the area to serve the community of 8,439
With our partners and patients, we learned about the
persistent challenges of supply chain maintenance,
human resources for health, and financial sustainability
in Haiti. We opened our second clinic in Camp Coq, a
small community with a population of 20,000 people in
the northern region of Haiti. Our clinic offers the only
doctor for many miles. In addition to primary care, we
also provide maternal health services for expectant
mothers and their babies.
