Health through Walls appreciates the invaluable role that funders/donors and partner organizations play in making our work resilient and successful. It is because of these networks that we have been able to grow, deepen, and expand the quality and delivery of health care in various prisons in developing countries.

Many thanks to those individuals who donated to HtW. We also appreciate the generous support in 2019 from Gilead Foundation, USAID, Global Fund, TB Reach, and AIDS Healthcare Foundation....Enormous gratitude for our partner, the AIDS Health Foundation (AHF) and their collaborations with HtW including in Haiti: partnership at more than a dozen prisons in Haiti; clinic and office space; collaboration on community health fairs; community outreach and activities; and for staff. AHF also collaborates with HtW in the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

Each partner provides critical insight, knowledge, experience and sincere concern and commitment to prisoners' access to meaningful health care. These partners and networks accompany us and contribute to the impetus necessary to building meaningful and sustainable change through coordination, collaboration and strategic planning.

D.A.N.G.E.R Peer Educator Training program administrators at Haiti's National Penitentiary

HtW held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Haiti's national penitentiary to inaugurate the mobile digital x-ray machine donated to HtW by USAID for screening prisoners for tuberculosis. Present were the prison authority and their Acting Medical Director, USAID, the Ombudsman of Haiti's Office of Citizen Protection, and other stakeholders and partners. The x-ray machine produces high-resolution images in less than 10 seconds, which can then be sent via Internet to experts in the U.S. and locally for accurate diagnosis of patients.

Collaboration between Health through Walls, the Government of Haiti and USAID illustrated on wall in dispensary at Haiti's National Penitentiary.
