More than 50,000 Displaced Children and Family Members Received Medical Care through Integrated Mobile Clinics In Port-Au-Prince


Since the coordinated attacks operated by armed groups in late February, UNICEF and its partners have rapidly scaled up their efforts, reaching over 50,000 displaced children and families impacted by the resurgence of violence in various parts of the city through integrated mobile clinic interventions.

The situation in displacement sites remains critical, with overcrowded conditions and limited access to healthcare and vaccinations exacerbating health risks such as cholera, malaria, and malnutrition. UNICEF, WHO, and partners including Médecins du Monde and the Ministry of Health ensured continuity of care delivery to internally displaced persons (IDPs) and affected communities.

"We offer an integrated package of services to children and their families, including consultations and treatment for children, pregnant women, mothers, adolescents, and families, identifying and treating cases of malnutrition, and administering vaccinations to children and pregnant women," says Jean-Bosco Hulute, UNICEF Head of Health Programme. "In March alone, more than 51,000 individuals, predominantly women and children, received vital healthcare services through mobile clinics."
