The Maissade area of Haiti is very rural with small villages and farms dotting the countryside. General practice clinics along with a pharmacy component provide healthcare for the surrounding area. Madame Joa clinic is approximately 13 km west of Maissade and serves the area as a dispensary. Construction of the current building was never completed with the majority of it in 2007. Condition of the building is very bad owing mostly to quality of materials used in construction.
Save the Children asked Architecture for Humanity to design and oversee construction of a new general practice clinic which will also serve as a dispensary. The existing building will be demolished with a temporary clinic provided while construction is completed.
