U.S Government investments are strategically focused on three key development corridors (Cap Haitien, Saint Marc, and Port-au-Prince) that are expected to have the greatest potential for driving Haiti’s economic recovery and growth.
The 2011 USAID Health Strategy is aligned with the U.S Government 2011 Post-Earthquake Strategy for Haiti.
