HAITI: MSF responding to the earthquake
On January 12, a magnitude 7.0 quake struck about 10 miles (15 kilometers) southwest of the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince. Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) teams on the ground have witnessed significant damage to its medical facilities, injuries to patients and staff and an influx of wounded towards these hospitals in the capital.
Six months on, living conditions for Haitians remain dire. Today, MSF publishes a report, "EMERGENCY RESPONSE AFTER THE HAITI EARTHQUAKE: CHOICES, OBSTACLES, ACTIVITIES AND FINANCE" including key data on our work to date and our commtiment to our future work in the country.
