Microcredit and Vocational Programs
In 2000, GHESKIO established a crisis hotline and a clinic for victims of rape, sexual assault, and/or domestic violence. Women that are referred to the program receive medical care, counseling, family planning, and prevention and treatment of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.

In 2005, GHESKIO established a microcredit program with a focus toward women living with HIV, women who have suffered from sexual assault, and female commercial sex workers. Program participants have opportunities for education and job skills training that enable them to become self-sufficient and to enter the formal workforce. Participants are often able to become financially independent by starting or managing small businesses.

To date, GHESKIO has provided microcredit services and vocational training to nearly 5,000 women; those trained in the Ateliers83 vocational program create home accessories, crafts, and furniture for retail sale.

Primary School and Scholarships
Children and adolescents are among the most vulnerable populations worldwide, but are particularly vulnerable in developing countries. At GHESKIO Centers, we firmly believe in educating youth on health- and social-related topics to empower them and provide them with the ability to cope with life’s challenges.

In 2007, GHESKIO Centers created a clinic solely dedicated to youth, which provides youth-appropriate medical and psychosocial care.

In 2010, after the earthquake, a large number of children and adolescents living in the slums surrounding GHESKIO became orphans and many became homeless. They were unable to attend school due to financial and social obstacles that were created, in part, by the devastation of the earthquake. GHESKIO Centers, along with its donors, opened a primary school on the GHESKIO campus. By providing this school, as well as student scholarships for secondary students, GHESKIO has made it possible for hundreds of students to pursue a formal education.

Research
The GHESKIO Centers in Port-au-Prince, Haiti has been affiliated with Weill Cornell since its inception in 1982. Dr. Dan Fitzgerald of Weil Cornell Medical College has played a leading role during the past 20 years, first by conducting research for seven years in Haiti and now by making bimonthly visits. The Cornell – GHESKIO program has been a leader in international HIV/AIDS research.

The first comprehensive report (1983) of AIDS in a developing country was from GHESKIO. Since that time, there have been over 100 peer-reviewed publications. GHESKIO has developed therapeutic strategies for the most common opportunistic infections of AIDS, including the tropical enteric pathogens and tuberculosis, and for the provision of ART.  The research productivity has been recognized by uninterrupted NIH support since 1983 including a MERIT award, a Clinical Trials Unit (CTU), and a TB Research Unit (TBRU).
