The development of health care in the Leogane region of Haiti has been a ten-year story of international cooperation among health professionals, of closely targeted assistance, and of policy coordination between assisting private agencies and the Haitian government. The broadly based health care program of l'Hopital Sainte Croix of Leogane is presented as a model of a cooperative effort that has resulted in rapid regional health care development and as an encouragement to the many differing types of groups responding to a world in medical need.
