Haiti - Health : Internal doctors take the streets
Monday, following the decision of the Ministry of Public Health to abolish the monthly allowance of 9,000 Gourdes for student doctors trained in private universities and continuing their internship in hospitals https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-29787-haiti-politic-the-state-deprives-the-interns-of-private-universities-of-monthly-allowances.html as announced, the internal doctors concerned took the streets, waving placards expressing their claims, these future medical professionals wanted to protest against this measure and try to reverse the Ministry's decision, recalling that if they are today on the street instead of being with patients it was the fault of the State which created problems instead of solving them.

Recall that the conference of deans of recognized medical faculties of Haiti said it was surprised by this discriminatory measure which it unanimously denounced recalling in a note sent to Dr Fritz Deshommes, President of the Conference of Rectors, Presidents and Directors of higher education institutions in Haiti (CORPUHA) to the Minister of Public Health Dr Marie Gréta Roy Clément, and to Pierre Josué Agénor Cadet, Minister of National Education "The decision to award fees to the interns of private universities was taken with the rectorates of the universities concerned, this decision cannot therefore be questioned without consultation with the said universities."

The conference stresses that this unilateral decision is prejudicial to the families of interns from private universities emphasizing "By taking this discriminatory measure, the Ministry creates a deep uneasiness within the permanent conference of deans and officially recognized medical faculties of Haiti whose the mission, essentially, is to strengthen the spirit of cooperation and pooling of resources that exists between the different actors involved in the training of health professionals in Haiti."
