Huffington Post: What’s Working: Public Health Progress Since the Haiti 2010 Earthquake
Tom Frieden, CDC director
“…Addressing the public health needs of Haiti and helping them recover has been a daunting task, but it’s one that CDC, along with the government of Haiti and other partners, has taken seriously. And it’s working. Over the past five years since the earthquake the country has made real progress. Four particular areas of progress are clean water, HIV prevention and treatment, immunization, and core public health capacity. … CDC will continue to invest in Haiti’s public health systems through partnership and training, ensuring Haiti will be able to continue saving lives into the future” (2/23).
