Haiti - Health : The MSPP has not yet accepted the resignation of Dr. Lassègue
After the strike began July 6, 2011 and the announced resumption, on Wednesday, Aug. 31 on a background of dissatisfaction, Dr Gabriel Timothée Director General of the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP) wished to make some important clarifications.

"...activities will resume gradually [...] as you can see it for the emergency room, ENT and dermatology have never been unemployed, those services were not on strike, pediatric services will resume.

We asked that all the department heads gather around the Medical Director so that they make a proposal for the interim, because until now we still have not officially reacted to the resignation of Dr. Lassègue, because it's a big loss for us, we had invested a a lot in himin terms of energy, in terms of vision, of availability and competence... see him go like that, after a protest movement, hurts us, [...] at the ministry level, we have not officially reacted, you know when you give a letter of resignation, you can accept or refuse [...] we respect his opinion but in the meantime [... ] the interim will be provided. Yesterday morning, they had a meeting and gave me the names of persons or committees that will provide a interim waiting to make arrangements at the administration level.

There is no problem, because the administrator is in place, we asked him to make a record of all accounts, to know exactly what there is in terms of expenditure made and perhaps also to honor, so that a series of activities can be resumed.

[...] I take this opportunity to say that the hospital will be under construction [...] there are two choices to consider option A, where we will do the construction and demolition at the same time that we will maintain the services, and option B, which is to demolish all the space and begin to rebuild quickly, that's what creates all this upheaval.

There is concern, some wonder if they will lose their jobs, is the residents will be able to take their training... ? We met with all residents and resident doctors to tell them, that since the hospital will be under construction here is what can happen, we put the things on the table, we have nothing to hide. We have presented the two options and indicated that none had been officially chosen [...] in any case, that it is the option to gradually demolish [...] or to or make a complete demolition and relocation, it will require a contingency plan, ie it will be necessary that they adapt and work in a small space, and a reduced number of patients [...] we have identified a number of hospitals in the periphery, so that care can continue and that the training continue too..."
