About Us

The Haitian Global Health Alliance’s purpose is to support GHESKIO, a world-class research, treatment, and training facility in Haiti.

GHESKIO’s three-part mission includes clinical service, research, and training in HIV/AIDS and related diseases.

The Haitian Global Health Alliance provides financial support for Les Centres GHESKIO (guess-key-oh) in Port-au-Prince and its network of clinics throughout Haiti.

Founded in 1982 and directed by HIV pioneers and experts, GHESKIO is the world’s first institution dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS.

Today, GHESKIO is a world-class research, treatment, and training institution that serves more than 600,000 patient visits annually. Life-saving protocols and outstanding patient outcomes at GHESKIO have influenced treatment guidelines around the world and have dramatically improved global health.

Directed by Haitians, for Haitians, GHESKIO provides voluntary HIV counseling and testing; HIV treatment and disease management; maternal-child health and nutrition; tuberculosis diagnosis, treatment, and prevention; cholera treatment and prevention; treatment of sexually transmitted infections; provision of clean water and sanitation; primary education; student scholarships; and many other health and social services.

Serving some of the poorest individuals in Haiti, GHESKIO provides excellent, compassionate treatment and preventative services at no cost to its patients.
