Haiti - Geneva : «The state of health of the Haitian population remains worrying»
Marie Gréta Roy Clément, Minister of Public Health, representing Haiti in Geneva http://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-21013-icihaiti-geneva-haiti-at-the-70th-session-of-the-who-general-assembly.html during the 70th session of the General Assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO) (22 to 31 May 2017) on the theme "Building Better Systems for Health in the Age of Sustainable" intervened this week in the context of the general debates, underlining that "[...] despite the great advances in technology, the good faith and the manifest desire of the different actors to change the health situation, the results remain below expectations. The state of health of the Haitian population remains worrying [...]"

Extract from the statement by the Minister of Health :

"[...] I pay tribute to the contribution of the technical and financial partners of Haiti for their presence alongside us in the implementation of national health policies.

However, despite the great technological advances, good faith and the obvious desire of the various actors to change the health situation, the results obtained are still below expectations. The state of health of the Haitian population remains worrying and challenges us all. There will need to be greater involvement in the harmonization of interventions and the use of all available resources for genuine reform of our health system.

[...]

It is also important to remember that health systems in all countries need to be strong and resilient to ensure international health security. The situation in Haiti is far from being mastered, because with the rainy season of cholera outbreaks are revived all over the country. The unfulfilled promises of some partners put us under the obligation to deal with them but with limited means. Our country will not be able to stem this scourge if the promises are not honored.

The Republic of Haiti, with the establishment of a legitimate Government, is resolutely committed to sustainable human development. This civic commitment will be made with the contribution of everyone, but also with the support of the friendly countries that are members of WHO who have always supported us in this relentless quest for 'physical, mental, economic and social well-being' as the slogan of the WHO says so well. This is a challenge that must be within our reach and we will surely succeed in raising it thanks to your support [...]"
