Haiti - Ounaminthe : New health center for pregnant women
Dr. Jean Denis Pierre, Director Departmental Sanitary Northeast after receiving modern equipment for the Public Health Center of Ouanaminthe, said there was no more reason for a pregnant woman crosses the border to Ouanaminthe, to give birth in the Dominican Republic, noting that the Ouanaminthe Medical Center in terms of service and facilities was equal to a Community Reference Hospital (UNHCR).

More than 100 million US dollars are spent each year by the Dominican Government https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-21014-haiti-dr-more-than-5-billion-pesos-for-the-delivery-of-women-from-haiti.html for Haitian women who come to give birth in the Dominican Republic revealed Dr. Nelson Rodriguez Monegros, Director of Information of the National Health Service (SNS), which makes it a real problem binational.
