Boutik Sante is Fonkoze’s innovative program bringing health products, services, and education to rural Haiti while introducing a new business

Health Program

Fonkoze’s Health program provides our clients with crucial health support as they continue climbing our Staircase Out of Poverty. We offer health trainings, vitamin distribution and training, referrals, and screenings for child malnutrition.

 

Our Solidarity Center Chiefs (women elected as leaders by their peers) play a key role in the distribution network for our Health services. During trainings led by Fonkoze staff, Center Chiefs receive vitamins to distribute to their Center members, learn about preventative healthcare, and are trained to screen their members’ children for malnutrition.

Boutik Sante (community health store)

Boutik Sante is Fonkoze’s social franchising initiative that brings health products, education, and services to rural Haiti. Fonkoze’s team of registered nurses trains microfinance clients to become Community Health Entrepreneurs (CHEs). They learn to conduct basic health screenings, deliver health education sessions and procure health products from Fonkoze that they resell in their communities.

 

Seventy-five percent of Haitians lack access to health products and services, particularly those living in rural and hard-to-reach areas.

 

Often, by the time they are able to reach a clinic, they suffer acute symptoms from illnesses that

could otherwise have been treated with preventive health care and over-the-counter medicine. Boutik Sante is Fonkoze’s response.

 

Boutik Sante's IMPACT:

 

  • More than 500,000 households served in 2017 alone
  • More than 28,000 children screened for malnutrition as of YE 2017
  • As of September 2017, 976,000 Haitians have improved access to health products, education & services
  • More than 20,000 rural children have received multivitamins
  • 830 CHEs trained to open a boutik sante in their communities

 

Community Health Training: Boutik Sante

 

Although the provision of many health services requires highly trained professionals, there is consensus that the delivery of a number of basic, essential health services can be shifted to community members who receive rapid, skills-based training with close supervision.

 

Scaling Up + Sustainability: Boutik Sante

 

In 2015, Boutik Sante launched its five-year scaling phase, supported by Healthy Entrepreneurs, its supply chain partner. Fonkoze is also working with the Haiti Ministry of Health to coordinate patient referrals.

 

By 2020, Boutik Sante will have trained 1,800 CHEs, reaching an estimated two million individuals in rural Haiti.

 

Boutik Sante is on track to break even, with revenues covering operational costs, by 2021. At that time, the program will no longer require external funding.

 

2014 Pilot: Boutik Sante

 

A 2014 pilot program proved Boutik Sante to be both clinically effective, improving health outcomes and increasing the use of health goods among 4,500 beneficiaries—and financially sustainable, with 20% profit margins for 69 CHEs within six months of operating. New to Haiti, this innovation draws on successful similar models that are being implemented worldwide.
