Within hours of the earthquake in Haiti, Red Cross staff and volunteers were administering first aid to the survivors of this terrible tragedy. To date, the Red Cross has provided hundreds of thousands of people with medical support, which includes the deployment of Red Cross field hospitals. During the recent Hurricane Matthew, which struck the Southwest Department on October 4, 2016, the Red Cross mobile clinic assisted more than 3,500 people.

Integrated Health Program

The Canadian Red Cross implemented a $35-million integrated health program in the Southeast for mothers and children. The program focuses on four areas: community health, health centres, reconstruction of the Saint-Michel hospital and staff training, and institutional strengthening in public health. The program was rolled out in collaboration with the Haitian Red Cross and the Ministry of Public Health and Population and is supported by Haitian and Canadian partners such as the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre, the International Health Unit at the University of Montreal and the Montreal Health and Social Services Agency.
