Where We Work
Mirebalais (Meer-bah’-lay), founded in 1703, is a town in the Central Region of Haiti, 25 miles as the crow flies from Port-au-Prince. The drive takes about 1 ½ hours, to drive up Goat Mountain and reach the town. There are approximately 9,000 inhabitants and is surrounded by dozens of smaller communities within a five mile radius. The town features a busy town square surrounded by St. Louis Catholic Church, the Mirage Hotel, and small motorcycles that are a primary mode of transportation for many. In May 2013, Partners in Health built the world’s largest solar powered University Hospital of Mirebalais.
