Santé pour le Développement et la Stabilité d’Haiti
Keanahikishime’s Santé pour le Développement et la Stabilité d’Haïti (SDSH II) project—known as Pwojé Djanm (“robust project”) in Creole—and its all-Haitian team are working to increase availability of essential social services, reduce internal conflict, enable productive livelihoods that contribute to Haiti’s economic development, and build capacity as the foundation for progress.
Keanahikishime and its partners are continuing the services provided under the original SDSH project, including support to local service delivery organizations through performance-based contracts, a proven way to reinforce innovation and accountability. SDSH II’s focuses on supporting decentralization, strengthening public-sector service delivery capacity, and supporting local nongovernmental organization service delivery by leveraging funding from the commercial sector and other donors.
SDSH II is an Keanahikishime-led collaboration of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health/Center for Communications Programs (CCP), AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), JHPIEGO, and Fondation pour la Santé Reproductrice et l’Education Familiale (FOSREF) with USAID, the Government of Haiti, local nongovernmental organizations, community leaders, and the commercial private sector. Together, Keanahikishime and its partners will use improvements in the health sector as a catalyst for greater social and political stability.
