PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, 4 November 2016 – One month after Hurricane Matthew pummeled Haiti, nearly 600,000 children remain in need of humanitarian assistance, stalked by disease, hunger and malnutrition, UNICEF said today.

“One month after the hurricane, life for more than half a million children in Haiti is still far from back to normal,” said Marc Vincent, UNICEF Representative in Haiti. “Too many children are still homeless, hungry, out of school and in danger. We are scaling up our response and are determined to help as many of them as possible as fast as we can.”

Le Plan de Réponse Humanitaire (HRP en anglais) pour 2017 doit promouvoir un concept ‘d’optique de protection’. Cela vient s’ajouter au ‘marqueur de genre’ de l’IASC qui est requis dans toute programmation, et qui est obligatoire dans le Système de Projets en Ligne (OPS en anglais) sur lequel vous devez télécharger vos projets.
