Association for the Promotion of Integral Family Healthcare (APROSIFA)

The Association for the Promotion of Integral Family Healthcare (APROSIFA) is a Haitian volunteer organization that has worked for nearly fifteen years in the shantytowns on the slopes of morne l’Hôpital, a hill overlooking the city of Port-au-Prince. APROSIFA provides health services primarily to women and children, following an innovative approach based on the multidimensional nature of health problems. APROSIFA intervention efforts include strong involvement with traditional local organizations.
