through the training of Haitian generalist physicians fell on deaf ears.
Therefore, the onus for funding fell on Medishare. Medishare had accomplished great things in Haiti, but as a small “niche” charity, major fundraising had always been its Achilles’ heel. It was also stretched thin by its commitments to Thomonde and volunteer trips. Medishare’s board was growing restive with an open-ended commitment to the residency program and no end in sight. Other long-term sources of funding would have to be found.
