About Sante Nou Health
Sante Nou's Purpose:
The Santé Nou service makes emergency care available to persons traveling to Haiti, while simultaneously linking the primary care needs of their families and loved ones residing in Haiti. The Santé Nou service brings peace of mind to travelers, especially when faced with unforeseen medical emergencies during their travels to Haiti.
The primary care service extends to residents of Haiti access to a series of basic preventative and primary care services, including history, physical, clinical laboratory, diagnostic radiology, vaccinations, and basic medications.
"The primary care voucher will help loved ones receive access to preventative and primary care, which will improve their health and when this happens, so will life expectancy in Haiti," said JP Michel, Chairman, and CEO of Santé Nou Health.
When a US traveler subscribes to the emergency care service and becomes the main subscriber (or account holder), they will receive one free primary care voucher to sponsor family members to receive access to primary care throughout Haiti. In the end, both travelers and residents of Haiti alike will find peace of mind because of the Santé Nou service.
