Equity lies in the premise that health is a human right for all and that resources should be distributed fairly within a population. Fair distribution requires that the most needy of the population are provided with the most resources, the most needy being the poorest and most marginalized people of a country, such as women and children and those living in rural and remote communities. Attention is paid to the most needy because health care is often inaccessible to the most vulnerable because of availability, location, or cost, despite the higher incidence of poorer health experienced by these populations.

Equity is at the core of CNP/Kore Timoun's activities. Our monitrices work within the most remote communities in Léogâne, traveling long distances through the mountains to provide their communities with preventive health education and malnutrition treatment.
