Medical Care in Haiti

Public institutions provide services which are of a much poorer quality to private services in Haiti. Whilst Port-au-Prince offers private doctors and hospitals, many of those are not always accessible. The Canapé Vert Hospital and Diquini Adventist Hospital are both recommended by the embassy for travelers seeking treatment.

In Haiti, it is easy to buy drugs without a prescription as they are not subjected to rigorous regulation. Street vendors also sell medicines but you are advised to avoid these. A list of reliable pharmacies includes the Pharmacy of the Champ de Mars (25 Rue Capois) and Multipharma (35 Rue Lamarre).

There are no centralized emergency numbers. Please keep in your wallet contact information about local police and medical centers. Click the links above for updated contact information.
