HIGHLIGHTS

  • Conclusive reports from the recently completed search-and-rescue operations highlight the devastating impact of the earthquake.
  • As of 3 September, nearly 46 per cent of affected families have received humanitarian assistance.
  • Against a backdrop of urgent needs, response efforts continue to be challenged by access constraints along the main supply route (RN #2), which provides access for the delivery of aid to quake-affected areas in the south.
  • Despite challenges, robust response efforts are underway across the priority sectors of food,
    WASH, health and emergency shelter.
  • On 30-31 August, Prime Minister Dr Ariel Henry officially launched the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) process with support from the UN system, the European Union, World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank.
