Adapting a Health Systems Strengthening Model to Improve Access to Health Services in a Factory: A Pilot Project in Haiti

The pilot intervention described in this brief took place at an apparel manufacturing company, Caribbean Island Apparel SA, located in Port-au-Prince. This pilot project applied a health systems strengthening (HSS) model to demonstrate the value of a new management approach to workplace health services and practices. The results indicate that better management of worker health benefits the factory through effective use of existing resources, improved human resources processes, and better productivity.
