Haiti: Hurricane Matthew Situation Report No. 35 (04 March 2017)

Main Points

  • In the five months after Hurricane Matthew struck southwestern Haiti on 4 October 2016, humanitarian partners reached over 1,000,000 people with humanitarian assistance in the most affected regions of Grand’Anse, Sud and Nippes.
  • The emergency response is coming to an ending and the focus is shifting to early recovery in all of the sectors. It is essential to support on-going self-recovery efforts, including building back safer and strengthening the capacity of affected communities to face the coming hurricane season.
  • Critical humanitarian needs remain, particularly in the Food Security and the Shelter/NFI sectors. The emergency rehabilitation of health facilities and restoration of permanent access to basic health services are life-saving priorities for the populations of Grand’Anse and Sud regions.
