The Canadian Red Cross has been working to improve the health of women and children in Haiti since the devastating earthquake in 2010. In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew, hit the Southwestern district of Grand Anse and the lower Northwestern part of Haiti, leaving destruction in its wake. The Canadian Red Cross (CRC) deployed an Emergency Response Unit (ERU) mobile clinic to address primary health needs in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Following the emergency phase, Hurricane Matthew Recovery Program was developed in collaboration with the Haitian Red Cross and Ministry of Health of Haiti, in order to meet the needs of health care and to put in place health infrastructures that will contribute to the economic development of the region. The project is guided by two main intermediate outcomes: Improved provision of health services by MSPP in Grand’Anse region (Anse d’Hainault, Dame-Marie, Beaumont and Roseaux communes); and improved capacity of communities for preparedness, prevention and control of epidemics.
