A Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) modular surgical hospital will soon be operational in the municipality of Tabarre in Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital, a project to which the EIB has contributed €600,000 in grant financing.

The hospital, built in prefabricated containers, will help provide access to health services free of charge to the population of Port au Prince, i.e. around 3,500,000 people and should perform some 130 surgeries per month. The MSF hospital will be a reference centre for orthopaedic, visceral and paediatric surgery.
