The Current State of Emergency Care in Haiti – Redefining and Reshaping the Road Ahead

Location: Room 117

With approximately one million Haitians from the diaspora traveling  annually to Haiti, the availability of urgent and emergent care is a significant and recurrent concern.  Emergency care in Haiti is performed by Haiti’s healthcare delivery system, which itself lacks all of the basics such as access to care, specialized equipment, and a capable emergency transport infrastructure. This vital service is often critically strained due to a paucity of resources and sustainable funding. The panelists will discuss the current state of the emergency care system in Haiti.  It will explore the types of services available in the country, their weaknesses, and potential solutions.
