The ICRC has been present in Haiti for more than 20 years, working hand in hand with the Haitian National Red Cross Society. On 10 August 2022, we opened a new ICRC office in Haiti to consolidate our presence and ensure the long-term sustainability of our humanitarian services in the country.

Our work in Haiti

The ICRC works to alleviate human suffering as a result of armed violence. We provide support to the authorities to incorporate international humanitarian law into domestic legislation and help the authorities and other actors to abide by this body of law.

Our work with the Haitian National Red Cross Society

In light of the continuing violence, the regional delegation in Panama has been coordinating with other members of the Movement to help the Haitian Red Cross build its capacities, for example, in the areas of health care and disaster-preparedness and response, which is particularly important in the earthquake-prone south of the country. The ICRC draws on its expertise in humanitarian diplomacy to negotiate with armed actors in gang-controlled neighbourhoods to help ensure the Haitian Red Cross has access to communities affected by the violence.
