Haiti - Insecurity : 96,000 people fled the insecurity of the capital
The number of people displaced by gang-related violence in metropolitan Port-au-Prince has tripled in the past five months, according to a report released this week by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The assessment, conducted between June and August 2022, recorded more than 113,000 displaced people in Haiti, of whom 96,000 fled insecurity in the capital, due to inter-gang violence and social unrest.

The report was produced by IOM's Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), in coordination with Haiti's Directorate General of Civil Defense. DTM assessments provide accurate and regular data on internally displaced populations to inform evidence-based humanitarian action. These assessments mark the growth of displacement activities in Haiti, as IOM remains one of the main providers of data on population mobility, forced displacement and the humanitarian situation in Haiti.

An early warning system on forced displacement set up by the DTM shows that almost a fifth of neighborhoods in Port-au-Prince were affected by widespread violence in July.
