A delegation of health professionals in Haiti is in Brazil to meet the management mechanisms and the structure of the emergency services and the emergence of the Unified Health System (SUS). On Wednesday (21), professionals visited the center Service Mobile Emergency Care (Samu) in Brasilia.

The initiative of the Ministry of Health aims to contribute to the strengthening of the health system in the Caribbean country, devastated by an earthquake in 2010, which left more than 3 million victims. Recently, the country was hit by Hurricane Sandy, which increased the cholera outbreak.

The visit is part of Project Haiti, a partnership of the governments of Brazil, Haiti and Cuba, which provides for the rehabilitation and construction of hospitals, equipment procurement, as well as providing training scholarships to Haitian health professionals.

Tomorrow (22), the group will depart for Sao Paulo and then to Salvador to visit centers of emergencies and attend the introductory course by the Teaching of Samu. The return to Port au Prince, capital of the Caribbean country, is scheduled for Dec. 2.

Since the earthquake of 2010, the Brazilian government has donated 30 ambulances to Haiti equipped with automated external defibrillator and helped in the reconstruction of two specialized laboratories in surveillance. By the end of the project in 2014, a thousand agents receive training to work in health care.
