FSIL opened its doors to the first class of 36 nursing students in January, 2005. The dream of Dr. Jack Guy Lafontant and other Haitians working with the Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF) in Léogâne was to start a school of nursing to help improve care at Hôpital Ste. Croix (HSC) and the rest of Haiti.

Promoting Health In Haiti was founded to provide support for Haitian schools of nursing. The organization’s goal is to create collaborations between North American and Haitian schools of nursing, in order to develop Bachelor’s level and Master’s level nursing education; so that nurses will have the training they need to provide the complex care they are called on to deliver, in hospitals and in outpatient settings.
