iciHaiti - Insecurity : Violence continues to affect the health sector
The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reports that violence in Haiti continues to affect the health sector, further limiting people's access to vital care in and around Port-au-Prince.

According to health partners, only 20% of health facilities in the capital are fully operational, mainly due to attacks and looting perpetrated by armed groups.

The reopening of the Port-au-Prince international airport earlier this week, on May 20, is a positive development. Currently, there is only the only operational Haitian airline, Sunrise Airways https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-42348-haiti-flash-sunrise-airways-flight-resumption-schedule-according-to-destinations.html . It is essential that the airport is fully operational and the seaport is reopened to ensure the entry of medicines and medical supplies into the country to replenish running stocks.

With the arrival of the rainy season and potential flooding, the risks of water-borne diseases such as cholera will increase, particularly in sites hosting displaced people.

Since late February, the International Organization for Migration and its partners have supported the provision of health services to more than 21,000 displaced people in Port-au-Prince through mobile clinics.

Separately, UNICEF said yesterday that it had facilitated the delivery of 38 tons of supplies, including health and cholera kits and other essential medical products, to Haiti. The delivery was made possible via an airlift from Panama to Cap-Haïtien, supported by the European Union Aid Office and made operational by the World Food Program (WFP).
