The IHV – in partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) – provides care and treatment to 30% of Haiti’s HIV/AIDS patients. Through the years IHV has trained and employed national Haitians to diagnose and treat HIV/AIDS patients, educate the public on the pandemic, and implement other important public health initiatives based upon IHV’s programs and mission.

Following the 2010 earthquake, a collaborative team of 22 health care professionals from the University of Maryland School of Medicine/IHV and University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center were the first team of relief workers sent to Haiti due in large part to IHV’s existing relationships in country.
