Haiti - Health : Nearly 40% of Haitian doctors settle abroad
While in Haiti our hospitals are suffering from a shortage of doctors, nearly 40% of health care professionals, trained in Haiti at the Faculty of Medicine at the expense of taxpayers, are leaving the country.

If 13% of US black doctors are Haitian origin US is not the only host country for our medical professionals Canada and the countries of South America are other countries privileged by our doctors in search of a decent life.

Dr. Jean-Claude Cadet, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, acknowledges that with the inadequacy of the budget at the national level it is impossible to believe that a better life in Haiti can be offered to a doctor after 10 years studies...

With an average of 6.5 doctors per 10,000 inhabitants (2009), Haiti ranks last among the countries with the lowest population of health personnel behind Guyana (11.2%), 4 times below the minimum standard of the World Health Organization (WHO) of 25 doctors per 10,000 population.
