Health at risk in Haiti as crisis and violence worsen
Ten years following the devastating earthquake, and five years after further damage from Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Haiti’s healthcare system remains precarious.

A series of disasters and outbreaks, political and economic crises, and attention and investment from donors having gone elsewhere, have led to severe shortages of medical supplies and staff.

We continue to respond to urgent needs wherever possible. In Port-au-Prince, the capital, MSF teams treat trauma and burns victims, with many injuries the result of tensions and protests.

MSF teams also treat victims of sexual and gender-based violence in Port-au-Prince and support maternity services in Port-à-Piment, in the country’s south.

Between May and August 2020, we also responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by providing treatment in COVID-19 units, including one temporarily converted from our burns hospital in Drouillard, a neighbourhood of Port-au-Prince.
