Haiti - Ouanaminthe : «Assisted voluntary return plan» for Haitians in DR
Saturday, as part of the management of the Covid-19 pandemic on Haitian territory Louis Gonzague E. Day, the Minister of Haitians Living Abroad (MHAVE) visited the border market of Ouanaminthe, the health facilities installed and took note of the measures taken to limit the spread of the virus in Haiti in order to better understand the mechanism of the "Assisted voluntary return plan" for our compatriots in the Dominican Republic.

Recall that the "Assisted Voluntary Return Plan" planned between Haiti and the Dominican Republic through the Embassy of Haiti in Santo Domingo where Haitians wishing to return to the country will register.

With the support of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) of the two Republics their return to the country is planned as follows :

  • The Embassy of Haiti in the Dominican Republic registers those who wish to return to the country;
  • The Dominican Embassy provides care for Haitians and their transport to the border according to a schedule established between the two governments;
  • The Haitian Red Cross provides their food.

The targeted implementation of the program includes :

  • Support for Haitians arriving from the Dominican Republic on the Haitian border;
  • Verification of their state of health at the sorting center (temperature measurement, observation of symptoms and test to detect the Covid 19);
  • Quarantine in a center equipped with water, electricity, shower, internet and cable TV with Canal plus;
  • The follow-up of people tested positive for Covid 19 to an appropriate hospital center is provided by the Ministry of Public Health through the MSPP.

The OIM provides 120 beds to accommodate Covid 19 patients in an already functional quarantine center with 10 patients on the Ouanaminthe border. To date IOM has already secured the return of 875 compatriots to their hometown in Haiti.

Minister Day, concerned about the fate of our compatriots invites the population to continue to respect and follow the instructions of the health authorities, in order to slow the spread of Covid-19 in Haiti which has already infected 958 people https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30857-haiti-flash-958-confirmed-cases-and-3-115-suspected-cases.html

Note that the Minsitre Day was guided and informed during this visit by officials from IOM, the Ministry of Health, PoliFront, volunteers from the Haitian Red Cross, Immigration Officer among others...
