Haiti Humanitarian Emergency

A woman holds her child.
UNFPA Haiti

Haiti is prone to natural disasters that cause recurrent humanitarian crises. The country has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the Western Hemisphere owing to a lack of affordable health care and facilities in rural areas, and violence against women and girls is commonplace. In times of crisis, instances of complications during childbirth and gender-based violence tend to increase along with the stress and uncertainty of such situations. UNFPA and partners work to provide sexual and reproductive health services, as well as support mechanisms to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, to ensure the health and safety of every woman and girl.
