Haiti : 2017-2018 Revised Humanitarian Response Plan - January-December 2018

Evolution of the crisis

One year after the passage of Hurricane Matthew, nearly 1 million people are still in need of some form of humanitarian assistance. The humanitarian situation in Haiti, however, notably evolved in 2017: 1.32 million people were estimated to be living in severe food insecurity compared to the 1.5 million in the previous year, there was a 67% decrease in the total number of suspected cases of cholera in comparison with 2016 and the cumulative number of migrants deported or who spontaneously returned from Dominican Republic since July 2015 increased from 158,800 in December 2016 to 230,300 in October 2017.

Summary of Needs, Targets and Requirements

  • People in need : 2.8 million
  • People targeted : 2.2 million
  • Requirements : 252.2 million
The humanitarian community, in support of the efforts of the Haitian government, aims to reach 2.2 million out of the estimated 2.8 million people in need in 2018. The Humanitarian Response Plan aims at ensuring equitable access to assistance through gender and age-sensitive activities that promote sustainable recovery for the targeted population. The response plan requires US$252.2 million to achieve this goal.


The methodology used to calculate and determine sectoral and inter-sectoral figures on people in need and needs severity as well as people targeted and prioritization of departments can be found on page 46-48 of the document.
