"Among more than 350 patients present during the attack, many were in intensive care, in critical condition.

Several incubators were damaged by the shooting, endangering these already vulnerable babies."

The Haitian Medical Association and the Union of Haitian Doctors condemn the armed attack against the premises of the Mirebalais University Hospital.
