UNFPA Haiti

Haiti is still suffering from the consequences of the devastating 2010 earthquake. More than half of the population has no access to health services due to steep costs, insufficient availability in rural areas, and limited knowledge. The maternal mortality ratio is the highest in Latin America and the Caribbean. UNFPA responds to humanitarian needs and assists with extending basic maternal and reproductive health care services, especially to the poorest and most excluded groups. It helps build capacities to generate reliable data on population trends, and supports measures to protect women and girls against gender-based violence.
