One of the five pillars of our Social Support Model essential for any community to thrive as it should.

PREVENT. PROMOTE. PROTECT.

In most of the rural communities we serve, families are unable to access even the most basic healthcare due to lack of finances, transportation or access to services. Through both our mobile clinics and our clinic at ESPWA, we are able to provide access to quality medical care, public health education and mental health counseling.

These efforts enable us to equip communities to build and sustain healthcare programs that Prevent illnesses, Promote healthy lifestyles and Protect mental and physical health so those we serve can live longer, independent and sustainable lives.

Healthcare is MISSION CRITICAL

Prevention
Thru Public Health Education

Education leads to prevention! Overture invests in building awareness, educating and training for community members, leaders and families to help individuals identify when they or their family members have health problems and need to seek medical care.

 

Prevention is focused on a holistic view of health in that we train leaders and local authorities while facilitating resources that empower communities to live healthier, safer lives.

Promotion
Of Mental Health Counseling & Awareness

Children and adults in Haiti are often exposed to crises (political unrest, generational poverty, natural disasters) that can easily result in depression and/or post-traumatic stress disorder.

 

Overture invests in promoting healthy mental wellbeing, empowering individuals to take responsibility and control over their own health and lives. Mental health counseling helps individuals and families manage stress through education and the development of personal skills to build stronger and healthier families.

Protection
With Medical Care

Overture partners with local providers and organizations to facilitate mobile medical clinics that provide short and long-term medical care. Our goal is to strengthen the Haitian healthcare system by empowering and leveraging Haitian resources.

Our clinic at ESPWA is a center for many of our healthcare initiatives. Our partnerships with local healthcare providers keep our clinic at ESPWA operational for community members and critical cases identified during our mobile clinics.
