Women’s Programs

Family Health Ministries’ support of women’s health began when FHM founder, David Walmer, spent a week with a fellow Ob/Gyn, Dr. Jean Claude Fertillien at Hôpital Sainte Croix, in Leogane, Haiti in June of 1993.  At the end of that week, Dr. Walmer asked his new friend how he could help him and that gave birth to FHM’s cervical cancer prevention program and FHM’s mission statement

The cervical cancer prevention services expanded to become a comprehensive women’s health program when the Carmelle Voltaire’s Women’s Health Center opened as an outpatient clinic in February of 2016.  Four years later, in March 2020, the center hired Haitian certified midwives began offering 24/7 labor and delivery services to the community.  Funds have been raised and we are waiting to begin construction of a surgical suite at the center.
