Next week The Terry Project will host Partners In Health – currently the largest provider of health services and relief in Haiti – for a forum concerning the state of health care and socio-economic development in Haiti one year after the devastating earthquake that struck Port Au Prince on January 12, 2010.
Co-hosted by Haiti Solidarity BC and Help Hear Haiti, the forum will feature a talk by Partners in Health Advocacy Director Donna Barry concerning the organization’s Haiti-based sister organization, Zanmi Lasante, and their efforts to provide free public health care to over one million people in Central Haiti after one of the most destructive earthquakes in recent memory. This is a must-attend talk for anyone interested in the the progress of preventative health care models and women’s health programs in the developing world, and global health equity.
The event, which will be open to the public and free, will be held on Wednesday, March 23 at 4:30pm in room 200 of the Hennings Building at UBC. For more information about the event, contact Help Hear Haiti (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Haiti Solidarity BC (email@example.com).
