PEPFAR Helping to Rebuild Haiti's Health System

January 14, 2011

Reporter John Donnelly writes about a recent senior U.S. officials' news briefing on health concerns in Haiti on the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog. Officials said that just four months after the earthquake, "the number of those treated for AIDS was at 95 percent of pre-earthquake levels. ... [T]he number of pregnant women receiving AIDS treatment increased to 1,900 in 2010 from 1,100 a year before," Donnelly writes. Donald Steinberg, a USAID deputy, "said the emergency response used 'in large part the PEPFAR facilities on the ground,' including everything from triage centers to food and supply distribution sites" (1/11).
