Kay Mackenson

Haitian Creole translation for “Mackenson’s House”


Is a clinic that caters to children with chronic, non-communicable diseases.


We focus on early detection, management, education and prevention of acute and chronic complications of a variety of diseases including diabetes, heart disease, kidney disorders and juvenile arthritis.


Kay Mackenson finances currently the education of more than 40 children. Meet the 2017 KMC Scholars!

Clinical Programs

Kay Mackenson Center’s clinical programs focus on effective health care delivery for children with chronic diseases.

Diabetes, Heart and Renal Programs are currently in place, with more being added as the centre’s patient population and referral base increases.


Each year Kay Mackenson Clinic organizes KAN FRATERNITÉ. We went from 60 to 100 patients last year.  This camp is a fun, effective and heartfelt way to help young diabetics learn how to live with their condition. In 2018, we would like to have 150 patients and to make this we need to raise $15,000. Get inspired by our work!


The Kay Mackenson Research Program aims at improving knowledge in the area of pediatric chronic disease in Haiti.
