PAHO/WHO supports Technical Cooperation Mission with the Haitian Leprosy Coordination

During the past three years, Haiti suffered from food crisis and various natural disasters that include more than 5 hurricanes, floods, and an earthquake that devastated most of the Ouest Departement, including the Capital City, Port-au-Prince. The impact by the earthquake on response capacity was severe, as the already fragile Haitian government lost 33% of its personnel and 24 of the 25 official buildings.
Due to the need of reestablishing the activities of the Haitian National Leprosy Programme after the earthquake, the Regional Consultant for the Leprosy Programme of the Americas and the Caribbean visited Port-au-Prince in a technical cooperation mission from 3-6 of May.
