Health at risk in Haiti as crisis and violence worsen
Health needs are immense in Haiti, with a weak health system that was further weakened after the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew at the end of 2016.

We continue to respond to urgent needs wherever possible, but greater investment is required by the Haitian government and international donors to meet the growing demand.

In Haiti, sexual violence is a neglected medical emergency and the number of cases is greatly underestimated in official statistics.

We provide emergency medical care to victims of sexual and gender-based violence, and are working to improve the availability of services in this field and raise community awareness. We emphasise in particular the need for victims to seek medical care within 72 hours of being attacked.
