GHESKIO is housed in two campuses, including a three acre campus in downtown Port-au-Prince and a new Institute of Infectious Diseases and Reproductive Health (IMIS) on eight acres of land on the northern side of town, near the airport.
The GHESKIO Downtown Campus
Research, training, and patient care in the downtown campus are housed in eight buildings with an area of 50,000 square feet. Support from the international donor community, including the United States, France, Japan, Canada, Norway, and the Netherlands has helped this GHESKIO center expand from its original size of about 10,000 square feet. This has allowed the creation of separate areas for routine patient care and for volunteers enrolled in clinical studies. The research areas are all within fifty meters of the service laboratory and the administrative and clinical buildings. Routine HIV counseling and testing services are provided in the clinical building.
The GHESKIO Institute of Infectious Diseases and Reproductive Health
The GHESKIO Institute of Infectious Diseases and Reproductive Health (IMIS) will double the space available at the GHESKIO center for research, training, and clinical services. Construction has begun with support from the United States Agency for International Development and the French Cooperation.
