Haiti is not new to devastating events, the likes of which can leave the country crippled in the immediate aftermath, as well as on a longer term. Just four years ago, the massive earthquake gave evidence of this. This month, the country's first helicopter service for emergency medical response became operational. The feat is thanks to the non-profit organization Ayiti Air Anbilans (AAA). Days ago the AAA flew their first patient, and after a visit from First Lady Sophia Martelly, they await the auspicious visit of the Head of State, President Michel Martelly.
The risk of offering medical services in Haiti, during a time of crises and during times of relative calm include geographical obstacles, equipment and the lack of emergency response. It is widely stated that many patients need not succumb but for a failure to get them care in time. The white, blue and red helicopters of the AAA strive to ameliorate this.
The fleet is equipped with modern equipment that can render critical care and even some surgery. On it will fly a trained medical staff that can offer vital triage in a bad situation, while the helicopter routes them to any one of the 15 waiting affiliate clinics. This exemplary, much needed service will be provided to patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
This project came out of the agreement with Air Methods Corporation (AMC) announced around the third anniversary of the 2010 earthquake. The agreement stated that the AMC would give two Bell 407 helicopters (one as primary and one as backup), three pilots and two mechanics. The AAA was to provide the medical equipment and the clinical staff.

This is a picture where the US Agency for International Development (USAID) was delivering 10 ambulances to the Ambulance National Center (CAN) in Haiti
On Monday, December 15, 2014, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) donated 10 ambulances to the Ambulance National Center (CAN) to strengthen its North-East network and open the South. The delivery ceremony was attended by the First Lady Sophia Martelly in the presence of Dr. Florence Duperval Guillaume, the interim Priminister of Haiti (then she was the Minister of Health), Dr. Rajiv Shav, General Administrator of USAID, and other financial and technical personalities from the ministry. According to Dr. Shah, about 70% of the Haitian women give birth at home due to the lack of emergency medical services. He expressed his belief that these ambulances will improve the emergency health care system in Haiti provided it is supplemented by government support programs. The First Lady conveyed her solidarity with the emergency health care management program.
As Hurricane is expected to bear down on Haiti, motivated the island's National Contingency Plan (NCP) to release information of what to expect when the storm landed. NCP offered no preparedness tips, but a litany of alarming predictions: the death rate will soar, rural migrations to urban areas will multiply, and disease will be endemic.
