The women's health delegation is still in Haiti. New volunteers arrived at the end of February, relieving members of the volunteer team who had arrived immediately following the earthquake.

The maternity ward has been moved to a larger part of the Fonds Parisien clinic, and volunteers have trained the clinic staff on women's health and gender-based violence. They are also working with nearby clinics to make women's health a standard part of training.

MADRE's partner, the Circle of Health International, informed us that in addition to helping provide general care in the clinic, the midwives have assisted in a total of 23 births during their stay.
