Child Alert haiti UNICEF

Health & Nutrition

Haiti's public health infrastructure has been left in tatters by chronic unrest and only 40% of children have regular access to even the most basic health care services. UNICEF helps to ensure that Haiti's children have the best start in life through a holistic approach to health care. This includes support for routine immunization, nutrition, and providing essential health support to minimise the effects of childhood illnesses for the first five years. In addition, UNICEF supports maternity clinics to ensure safe child birth, as well as close monitoring and care in the neo-natal period.
