One year after the catastrophe, it's important to look back on what has been done and achieved and to review the choices that were made.  We must also be ready to tackle remaining challenges, formulate necessary strategies, and learn lessons that will improve our emergency responses in the future.

In the past year, MSF teams have:

  • treated 358,758 patients;
  • performed 16,578 surgical operations;
  • treated 91,000 cholera patients (60% of all cholera patients in Haiti);
  • and delivered 15,105 babies

MSF received massive financial support for the Haiti emergency from hundreds of thousands of donors around the world. To all of you who donated, thank you very much. By the end of 2010, MSF estimates that it will have spent all of the €104 million ($138 million) donated by private individuals to mobilize its earthquake relief effort and respond to the cholera epidemic.
