In the immediate aftermath of Haiti’s devastating earthquake in January of 2010, we focused on providing medical staffing, supplies and strategic coordination to help alleviate the surging humanitarian crisis on the ground. Six years later, there’s still much work to be done. Our longer-term strategy in Haiti continues to be the Hospital Consortium Project. Based on a Public/Private Partnership model, the project’s objective is to add capacity and boost the quality of patient care throughout the country. Additionally, our Surgical Support Program offers surgeries and follow-up treatment for children and adults in Port-au-Prince.
Currently running under Haitian management and staffing, bringing healthcare access to more than 15,000 local Haitians.
The death toll in Haiti as a result of Hurricane Matthew – the most powerful Caribbean storm in a decade – has soared to more than 400, officials say. Some 50 people were reported killed in the town of Roche-a-Bateau alone.
