2010 Spring Newsletter

  2. 2. A Haitian girl in a tarp shelter in Place Boyer, Petionville, a suburb of Port-au-Prince. Over one million people are living in tent cities in Haiti. THE PLAN FOR HAITI ALISON WRIGHT They survived the quake. We’re helping them survive what comes after. In the months following the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti’s capital on January 12, 2010, Direct Relief has delivered 55 shipments of emergency medical assistance worth $38.5 million to more than 40 Haitian healthcare providers. Having worked in Haiti since 1964, Direct Relief had strong relationships with the country’s largest hospitals and clinics, allowing us to rapidly deploy resources where they were needed most. Backed by the massive generosity of private and corporate supporters, Direct Relief has put together the most comprehensive emergency response in our 62-year history—more than 230 tons, or 350 pallets, of specifically requested medicines and supplies have been expedited to caregivers in Haiti, much of it airlifted free of charge by FedEx. As unprecedented as the short-term response has been, Direct Relief recognizes that the need in Haiti won’t fade with the headlines. Here are three high-impact ways Direct ALISON WRIGHT Relief is helping to make quality healthcare viable for the long term in Haiti.

  3. 3. The Right Medicines and Supplies, in the right hands Fifteen percent of the nine million people who live logistical burden off the healthcare facilities, and allowing them to in Haiti were displaced by the quake and forced to focus on patient care—not trucking and warehousing. live in some sort of makeshift shelter. This population Within hours of the quake, Direct Relief was in contact with is extremely vulnerable to the most basic health concerns related to corporate partners, matching anticipated needs with available supply. “Thank you for hygiene and compromised water and sanitation systems.

  4. 4. Mobility for the Long Run: prosthetics and rehabilitation Traumatic injuries were widespread following the earthquake—crushed bones, spinal cord injuries, and amputated limbs. Many of these injuries will result in life-long conditions and most will require rehabilitation. Even if the earthquake had not decimated the healthcare infrastructure, it would have been unable to support the immediate and long-term needs of those affected. Building on the success of the prosthetics and orthotics program Direct Relief created in Pakistan following the earthquake of 2005, Direct Relief has committed $2 million to strengthen Haiti’s physical rehabilitation capacity. $2 MILLION TO STRENGTHEN HAITI’S REHABILITATION CAPACITY Partnering with local groups, Direct Relief will leverage long-standing relationships with A Haitian boy international experts to help establish effective and lasting prosthetic and orthotic centers being treated for in Haiti, and see that these local organizations have the resources to train new prosthetists an amputated limb and orthotists so that the new centers are adequately staffed by Haitians. This work will help ALISON WRIGHT at Saint Damien Pediatric Hospital people long after the emergency of the earthquake has given way to the everyday reality of in Port-au-Prince. health care in Haiti. I n the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake, Mapping Assistance to Haiti Direct Relief collaborated with a wide range of organizations including Google, the Environmental Sciences Research Institute (ESRI), the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and the U.S. Department of State to help quickly generate a map of Haiti’s health facility infrastructure. In two months of work, the Interagency Haiti Health Facility Mapping group was able to generate a complete geographic database of all Haitian health facilities, enabling an accurate damage assessment, enhanced operational collaboration, and long- term public health planning benefits for Haiti’s Ministry of Health. Direct Relief has also used ArcGIS Server and Adobe Flex to produce an interactive web mapping application showing the location and value of all Direct Relief aid shipments. By linking specific clinical location data from the UN to our own data, we have been able to demonstrate an unprecedented level of transparency in humanitarian disaster response. Direct Relief ’s collaborative mapping work in Haiti will also be featured in upcoming conferences at the Global Health Council and the InterAction Forum.

  5. 5. Direct Relief staff sort emergency medical supplies with Hospital Sacre-Cour CDTI Pharmacist Vincent Nivenson Jr. (center, front). Efficiency, Ingenuity Mark Earthquake Responses in China and Chile Emergency response presents challenges in countries with stringent customs or importation policies. Most recently, Direct Relief faced these challenges in responding to the 8.8-magnitude earthquake in Chile and the 6.9-magnitude earthquake in China. Thanks to strong collaborations with healthcare providers and medical manufacturers working in these countries, Direct Relief was able to provide needed assistance to people injured in the earthquakes. The Qinghai earthquake damaged tens of thousands of buildings in a mountainous region of China. Following news of the quake, Direct Relief program staff contacted our partners in- country: One HEART COURTESY OF ALERTNET.ORG and the Amitabha REUTERS/ALFRED JIN,ALISON WRIGHT Foundation, which we have supported with aid and cash grants, as well as Mercy Relief, an emergency response The and medical aid organization based in Singapore.
