Haiti - Health : Strategies for the reinforcement of medical care in Haiti
A reflection on the management of medical care and the strategies for the strengthening of emergency medical care in Haiti, was held as part of the week of the diaspora, at the fourth day of activities organized by the Ministry of Haitians living abroad (MHAVE), around the official celebration of National Day of the Diaspora, on April 20.

Convened by the MHAVE, this panel that brought together doctors from Haiti and abroad, has allowed to assess the country's health system and to consider possible solutions.

Dr. Joseph Pierre Paul Cadet, President of the Executive Committee of the Association of Haitian Physicians Abroad (AMHE) declared : "Haiti gave a lot without making any claims in terms of investment in university education, to provide doctors, nurses etc... to the developed countries". He thinks that it is time to think about the return of these investments in the country, by the return to Haiti, of these health professionals and their involvement in the community.

To ease this burden, those responsible of the Association of Haitian Physicians Abroad, proposes a framework of reflection, likely to awareness a lot of people on the issue. Topics covered during these discussions, were among others: E-health in Haiti: from theory to practice with a video presentation; Training and exchanges from Canada (video presentation); medical education; response to medical emergencies : the support...

As part of a program of distance learning developed for the benefit of the Medical School of Haiti. "Residents of Haitian hospitals, will be invited in hospitals in New York," promised the participants, knowing that the future of any society depends on its human resources that must be protected.

According to Dr. Aldy Cartor, who spoke on the strategies of strengthening of emergency medical care in Haiti, "it is time that we define strategies 'Haitian', able to save lives after a traffic accident", citing as an example the recent accidents of the national road #2, in the height of Morne Tapion, which caused extensive loss of life due to lack of emergency care.
