Activities  2014 International Activity Report

Five years after Haiti’s massive earthquake, the health system is only partially reconstructed and specialist services remain out of reach for many people.

MSF has continued to fill gaps in the Haitian healthcare system (gaps it has been filling since before the catastrophic earthquake in 2010), and has been helping build local capacity by training national staff. Haitians need better access to emergency services, including obstetrics, neonatology, surgery and trauma care. Cholera is an ongoing health threat but there is a lack of available finances to tackle it and no effective response plan in place. MSF is regularly stepping in to treat patients and prevent major cholera outbreaks and loss of life.
