ARCHIVE (Architecture for Health In Vulnerable Environments) is an international non-profit organization that uses housing and environmental design as a key strategy for combating diseases. Our foremost goal is to improve health outcomes by delivering targeted housing design improvements.
Our past endeavors include a project in Saint-Marc, Haiti, Kay e Sante nan Ayiti (Creole for Housing and Health in Haiti), which sought to raise awareness toward the link between living conditions and the transmission of respiratory diseases such as tuberculosis (TB). Visit our facebook page for updates on this project and other current ARCHIVE efforts.
