Haiti - Social : Impact on post-earthquake gender (Investigation report)
This survey was carried out following the August 14, 2021 earthquake in the Grand to understand how the impacts affect people of different genders and of different ages and vulnerabilities.

In total, between 25 August and 2 September 2021 approximately 1,088 people were interviewed in person by the data collection methods and more than 3,200 people by the mobile and online methods (49% women and 51% men) in the departments of Grand Anse, Nippes, and South.

CARE and UN WOMEN in partnership with the Ministry for Women and Women's Rights, the Directorate General of Civil Protection, and the special gender task force of the humanitarian country team presented this week the results of the "Rapid Gender Analysis" survey.
