Haiti: Hurricane Matthew - Four Months Humanitarian Response, 10 February 2017 [EN]

Access, security and humanitarian presence

To bring life-saving assistance to scattered people affected by Hurricane Matthew, humanitarian organizations have to navigate a complex access situation. The very diverse geography, patchy road network, uneven damage to infrastructure caused by the hurricane and sometimes unpredictable security situation have forced aid agencies to use a variety of means to deliver relief. Cut-off communities in hard-to-reach mountainous areas are proving the most difficult to assist.
