The women's health delegation arrived in Jimani, Dominican Republic last Tuesday, and they immediately began working around the clock to provide emergency services to the many busloads of people who had fled Haiti. The team has since arrived in Fonds Pariesien, Haiti, where they are working in a clinic to respond to the needs of the incoming earthquake survivors.

Another medical team arrived on January 23rd to begin working on a Rapid Health Assessment to identify the most pressing women's health needs in Haiti. The information will be shared with other organizations and agencies to ensure all relief efforts are coordinated to effectively address women's health.
