Clinton Bush Haiti Fund Awards International Medical Corps $500,000 for Emergency Medical Care and Long-Term Rebuilding
Date:2/25/2010

More than a month after the quake killed an estimated 200,000 people and displaced more than a million others, International Medical Corps continues to expand its relief operations. Today, they include mobile and fixed sites throughout the quake-affected areas, treating more than 1,000 patients a day.

International Medical Corps was on the ground treating patients in Haiti 22 hours after the 7.0 earthquake struck on January 12. With an immediate base of operations out of the National University Hospital in Port-au-Prince, International Medical Corps has served as a lead agency coordinating NGO and volunteer activity at the hospital. Today, approximately 20 of its volunteer doctors and nurses provide day and night coverage in the ER, pediatrics, surgical and other units.

Beyond the capital, International Medical Corps, with support from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, is operating 15 mobile clinic sites throughout the broader earthquake-affected areas - including Port-au-Prince, Petionville, Carrefour, Petit Goave, Miragoane and Gressier. Teams are delivering health care services and training, including maternal/child health; nutrition; mental health; water/sanitation/hygiene; as well as communicable disease surveillance and public health precautionary messages.
