Haiti's interim Prime Minister, Florence Duperval Guillaume, began her governmental career in 2011 when she was named Minister of Health. Within that role, she earned the regard of aid agencies around the world, and made it her mandate to try and reach the 40% of the country that didn't have basic health care, which she outlined as her biggest challenge.
