Haiti: Protection
Created: 26/10/2016 +


This report focuses on protection-related issues in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Selected key findings:

  • Some aid is reportedly being distributed according to political support, creating discontent and distrust.
  • Sexual and gender-based violence is a major concern, particularly in shelters, where cases of rape have already been reported.
  • The government has announced a plan to close all remaining temporary shelters, but no strategy is in place to assist those who have lost their homes. Forced relocations and evictions of IDPs have occurred in Haiti in the past.
