OHMaSS / PSI (WCG)
WCG – WCG is an international non-profit organization committed to empowering, educating and enabling women and girls to make informed choices and access critical reproductive health products and services.Organisation Haïtienne de Marketing Social pour la Santé (OHMaSS) is a local PSI affiliate. OHMaSS proposes to distribute LNG-IUS through its Dutch-funded, free mobile clinic in the greater metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince. The mobile clinic allows women to receive quality counselling and to be exposed to the full range of available contraceptive choices, including new long-term methods not traditionally available to them. OHMaSS also partners with a small network of trained, youth-friendly clinics where clients can be referred for follow-up.The objective of the project is to pilot acceptability of the LNG IUS through OHMaSS free mobile clinic, and potentially through a small number of youth-friendly partner clinics. By introducing the LNG IUS, OHMaSS anticipates developing a positive attitude toward the LNG IUS within a small group of young women who will communicate favorably about the method and their positive experience.
The partnership with OHMaSS began in the summer of 2019, when the initial 100 units of LNG IS were shipped to Port-au-Prince.
