Emergency Doctors Leave Haiti

By Ianthe Jeanne Dugan PORT-AU-PRINCE—Doctors here are bracing for another onslaught of patients, as emergency workers leave the country and thousands of surgeries done after the January 12 earthquake need to be redone. Between 25% and 30% of postearthquake surgeries will need to be done again to avoid problems, says Dr. Jean “William” Pape, an infectious disease authority who is founder of Gheskio, an HIV/AIDS clinic next door to a field hospital set up by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. That estimate is corroborated by Haitian, U.S. and other medical officials involved in coordinating the international medical response, who say the problem is because of the massive numbers of injuries treated in poor conditions in an already weak health infrastructure. The unusually high level of second operations, along with other mounting medical issues, comes as many emergency […]

Urgent notice to subscribers of the English translation of the news from AHP

  Urgent notice to subscribers of the English translation of the news from AHP: Dear Friends, We are writing to ask for your help in preserving two of the last remaining vehicles of independent media left in Haiti.  The essential Port-au-Prince station Radio Solidarite, along with its sister organization,  news agencyAgence Haïtienne de Presse (AHP), are now struggling to remain operational in the face of dire economic and political impediments. During the 1991-1994 military takeover, AHP was among the very few organizations providing at great personal risk the only reliable news from Haiti, offering a beacon of hope for the many Haitians craving courageous, independent reporting. AHP’s record of defending basic Haitian human rights has been monumental. In the lead up to the February 29, 2004 ouster of Jean-Bertrand Aristide, AHP and Radio Solidarite resisted tremendous pressure to abandon their […]
