Haiti

MEASURE Evaluation's work in Haiti focused on improving the routine health information system (RHIS), developing and strengthening the community-based information system (CBIS) and enhancing nutrition surveillance in Haiti. Additionally, MEASURE Evaluation played an important role in helping the Haitian and U.S. governments identify disaster-relief priorities after the 2010 earthquake.

Organizations and individuals in Haiti’s private and public sectors have come together to respond to the country’s needs, especially following the 2010 earthquake that killed up to 250,000 people and made more than one million homeless. Malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, and other infectious diseases, such as malaria and a post-earthquake cholera outbreak, put the health and lives of Haitians at further risk.

MEASURE Evaluation worked in Haiti until 2014 to improve the routine health information system (RHIS), to develop and strengthen the community-based information system (CBIS), and to enhance nutrition surveillance. Additionally, MEASURE Evaluation played an important role in helping the Haitian and U.S. governments identify disaster-relief priorities after the  earthquake.           

MEASURE Evaluation in Haiti focused on:

  • Providing technical assistance to Haiti’s Ministry of Health (MOH) to extend the Haitian health information system (HIS) to all health districts in the country, with an emphasis on improving the quality, use, and management of data.
  • Collaborating with the MOH and USAID implementing partners to design and develop a CBIS for HIV programs to improve their effectiveness.
  • Help to set up a nutritional surveillance system to detect early malnutrition.
  • Assisting in earthquake response, including providing the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with an epidemiological profile of Haiti, helping the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services compile a master list of health facility status, producing tables and graphics to display post-disaster data, and more.
