About Community Health Initiative, Haiti

The Community Health Initiative, Haiti, (CHI, Haiti) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2012 by American doctors Chris Buresh and Josh White, friends since medical school. With their passion for global health and combined 14 years of work in Haiti, the two started CHI to partner with local communities in Arcahaie, Haiti, to address the pressing health needs as identified by the communities. To the doctors’ surprise, when asked about their most urgent request, the community asked for a road! As a healthcare organization, building a road seemed an unusual first project, but as we worked alongside the community members building the road, we began to learn the important reasons for the request, and how it actually was connected to health. This first lesson has informed our approach: listening deeply, setting aside our own priorities, and truly learning how to work in solidarity with our Haitian partners. We envision a day when all babies are born with a skilled birth attendant present, no child suffers from malnutrition, people no longer die of diarrhea or pneumonia, and chronic diseases are identified and treated using local expertise in Haiti.
