Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)  has been providing badly needed medical care in Haiti for nearly two and a half decades. Today in Port-au-Prince, MSF runs a trauma surgery department and the only free burn treatment center in the city in the Drouillard neighborhood. Teams provide surgical and orthopedic care at the 107-bed Nap Kembe hospital in Tabarre and a stabilization center in Martissant neighborhood. In Delmas 33, MSF runs a busy 143-bed emergency obstetrics program. All MSF services in Haiti are open 24 hours a day and are free of charge. 

In a crowded reception room, patients wait for care at Nap Kenbe – Creole for ‘staying well’ – surgical centre in Tabarre, eastern Port-au-Prince. Teams provide emergency trauma, orthopaedic and abdominal surgery for victims of gun crime and domestic violence as well as people injured in road accidents.
