Haiti - Health : Mission in Haiti of the hospital ship of the United States Navy
The Embassy of the United States in Port-au-Prince announces the arrival in Haiti of the US hospital ship USNS Comfort from November 4 to 13, 2019. This visit is part of the operation Sustainable Promise of the United States Navy, an initiative that aims to intensify US engagement in the region to strengthen the health pillar of the US / Caribbean 2020 strategy.

This stopover is a stage of the tour of the ship in Latin America and the Caribbean which, over a period of five months, carries out a mission of medical assistance.

Medical teams from USNS Comfort will work alongside medical professionals from Haiti to provide a variety of medical services to adults and children (family medicine, preventive medicine, dental exams and treatments, optometry, pediatrics, dermatology, women's health and physical therapy). In addition, basic surgical care will be provided on board the hospital ship. In addition, several medical professionals from other partner nations have embarked on the Comfort and are joining the effort to provide medical care to patients across the region.

It will be the seventh mission of a hospital ship in the region since 2007 and the fifth in Haiti since the beginning of the decade. During this mission, the Comfort medical teams also provided care in Colombia, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago, Ecuador, Grenada, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Panama, Saint Lucia and St. Kitts and Nevis.
