Of these, three sector-specific plans were highlighted in detailed presentations to the Board: Debris, Housing and Health, including a brief review of the cholera situation. The Commission also made a plea to its international partners for the channeling of significantly more funds to the Haitian Recovery Fund so it can truly become vehicle for the Haitian Government-led reconstruction program.

About the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission :
The Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC) was created by presidential decree on April 21, 2010, in the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010. The mission of the IHRC is to undertake the expeditious planning, coordination, and implementation of development projects and priorities, including reviewing and approving projects and programs funded by bilateral and multilateral donors, NGOs and the private sector. The IHRC is co-chaired by Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive and President Bill Clinton and is guided by a Board, which includes Haitian and non-Haitian stakeholders in reconstruction efforts.
