Sauveur Marcel M. was a site fellow at Zanmi Lasante in Haiti (2016-2018). He was born in Petite Riviere-de-l‘Artibonite, a rural area located in the lower Artibonite in Haiti. He grew up in Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, where he attended both high school and the State University of Medicine and Pharmacy. He spent about one year at the Hospital Ste Therese of Hinche based in the central Haiti as part of his social service prior to obtaining his license in Pharmacy in 2000. He has been working since September 2000 with Zanmi Lasante, first as a pharmacist in the system, and in 2011 was promoted to the position of Director of Pharmacy and Procurement. Over the years, Sauveur has greatly contributed to building a well-organized pharmaceutical system and procurement team across all the ZL sites. His field experience after one decade working with Zanmi Lasante has helped him better understand the relevance of global health, which is key from his standpoint to improve access and quality of care in the remote areas of Haiti.
