Haiti: Improving detention conditions remains a priority

09 January 2015

On 12 January 2010, a devastating earthquake in Haiti killed over 300,000 people and damaged or destroyed many public infrastructures – including prisons. Five years on, detainees remain one of the most vulnerable groups in the country. One of the ICRC's priorities is to improve their living conditions. We continue to support the social, legal and medical services provided to the detainees and to work for better sanitation facilities and improved infrastructures.
