WHO deeply concerned

“The World Health Organization (WHO) is deeply concerned about the impact of violence on hospitals and health centers in the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince, where less than 50% of establishments are operating at capacity normal. And those that remain functional lack supplies. This means people are deprived of access to basic healthcare. There is an urgent need for the international community to increase its support and funding so that vital services can be provided and essential supplies delivered,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of WHO.

The Police Union relies on the CPT

It also calls for providing the Haitian National Police (PNH) with adequate means to combat armed gangs in the country.

Unsanitary conditions in displaced persons camps

The “Défenseurs Plus Collective” expresses its deep dismay at the unsanitary conditions prevailing in the displaced persons camps, in particular the one located on the site of the “École Nationale Colbert Lochard”. The state of the premises is alarming, with living conditions marked by promiscuity and obvious unsanitary conditions. Basic sanitation facilities are sorely lacking, the absence of adequate toilets and the use of spaces adjacent to sewage channels as kitchens by some occupants, predisposes to the emergence of diseases and favors the spread of epidemics such as cholera and tuberculosis.
