December 2022 – After more than three years without cases, Haiti reported cholera cases in the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince in October 2022. In response, the UN released a Flash Appeal to address the needs of 1.4 million people in the country. As of December 15, according to the Pan American Health Organization, there are more than 14,000 suspected cholera cases in Haiti. Furthermore, this cholera resurgence is taking place in a complex operational context, with rampant insecurity, access constraints, and insufficient infrastructures to meet humanitarian needs. With GAC’s support, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is contributing to meeting the safety and sexual and reproductive health needs of vulnerable women and girls in Haiti. Project activities include: (1) ensuring protection from and response to gender-based violence; (2) providing emergency obstetric care, and sexual and reproductive health services; and (3) providing health services, medication, dignity and reproductive health kits to crisis-affected people.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved sexual and reproductive health of vulnerable populations; and (2) increased protection from gender-based violence. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated, and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or that are food insecure.
