High child mortality in Haiti can be attributed to a high burden of infectious disease, widespread malnutrition and lack of infrastructure enabling access to clean water, sanitation and health services. Léogâne was the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake, and prior to which had one of the highest under-5 mortality rates. Less than 40% of the population in the Ouest has access to basic health care services In rural areas, 13% of the population lives more than 15 km from the nearest health center. The objective of this research was to determine where the Children’s Nutrition Program of Haiti (CNP) should place monitrices (community health workers) in order to optimize efforts to improve the health situation of children in Léogâne Commune, Haiti who are at greatest need.
