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.

2019 saw a rise in large-scale and sometimes violent demonstrations in the country - a result of the collapsed economy and political scandals - coupled with a sharp rise in gun violence. In response to the significant injuries, MSF reopened a dedicated trauma surgery hospital in Port-au-Prince.

Our teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Haiti.
