Relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew
In partnership with Haiti Air Ambulance (HAA), IHI has been on the ground in the south of Haiti after Hurricane Matthew swept through the region. The team of physicians at HAA and IHI were the first to visit Port-Salut and Jeremie since the hurricane passed on Thursday, October 6. The hospitals in Les Cayes, Jeremie, and Port-Salut are functioning and, so far, the patients have mostly presented with illnesses independent of the hurricane. There are a lot of injuries; however,
Hurricane Matthew makes its way to Haiti.
Hurricane Matthew is making its way to Haiti. The National Weather Service reports that the southern region of Haiti will be hit with 25 to 40 inches of rain.
