In the context of the spread of Covid-19 in Haiti, this 6-month project aims to reduce the risks of transmission and ensure the continuum of care in the departments of the South, Grand'Anse, Centre, and South-East. ACTED plans to reinforce the coordination between actors, as well as the involvement of communities in the fight against Covid-19 through training, sensitization and the installation of hand washing points. In addition, access to water, hygiene and sanitation will be improved in 5 health centers and 3 border triage points, through the installation/rehabilitation of storage and distribution systems, disinfection, installation of waste management systems and latrines, and implementation of patient triage, classification and testing procedures.

This project is being implemented with the help of partner hospitals:

Hinche Hospital, Sanatorium des Cayes, Aquin Health Centre, Thiotte Health Centre, St Antoine à Jeremy.
