Internally displaced by the 2010 earthquake : Distribution of mosquito nets at the Camp Tabarre ISA

 July 2017, Port-au-Prince Haiti, about 2,900 people displaced by the 2010 earthquake live in Camp Tabarre ISA. Haiti is experiencing a new hurricane  season, and recent heavy rains have flooded low land areas, overfilled the water drainage channels and left stagnant water throughout the camp Tabarre ISA, making it an ideal environment   for the spread of mosquitoes and vector-borne diseases. By regularly monitoring the humanitarian situation in the displacement camps, the IOM CMO teams identifies the risks faced by the displaced populations. Today, IOM Health, Protection, Return and CMO (Camp Management Operations) teams distributed mosquito nets to 20 families and provided information on their use and how to effectively protect themselves from mosquitoes and the diseases they may transmit.
