Dr. Piverger’s ongoing mission in Haiti has increased in scope and intensity due to the earthquake. In addition to his work in Leogane Haiti in the days following the earthquake, trips were made April and May/June to assess the needs of the Haitian people and to help focus future efforts. He has continued his work with Loyola Medical students in Haiti, who accompanied him on the May/June trip. In addition to Leogane, he has been involved now with L’Hopital de la Communauté Haïtienne. While Dr. Piverger’s long-term goal is to continue his work on the Haitian Health Project, his immediate goals are to assist the citizens of Haiti and the Haitian medical community with any needs they identify as imperitive in the post earthquake period.

The Haitian Health Project
Dr.Yves Mario Piverger was involved in Haitian Health Care before the January 2010 Earthquake. He was the lead physician of a medical team to Cite Soleil, Port-au-Prince and Petite-Rivière-de-Nippes, Haiti. Contacts were not able to be found after the earthquake. He had been involved with the Haitian Health Project. The Haitian Health Project-Vini Aide was to support on-going civil services work through philanthropy and allocation of personnel for in-country projects. The project was to reflect the lifesaving work of grassroots organizations that are sometimes interrupted by a lack of personnel, finance, expertise or material resources.
