Next Challenge in Haiti: Sustainable Quality Health Care

Aid from international donors and organizations significantly boosted the quality of Haiti health care services delivered in the aftermath of the Jan 12. earthquake. The challenge now is to sustain this level of quality health care after health and aid workers move of out the Caribbean country.

Health workers know that all their efforts would be wasted if there are no long-term investments in Haiti’s local health care system, the Associated Press says. The challenge is to make the improvements gained over the last few months permanent before funds run out and the world’s attention shifts.
