Haiti’s new generation of doctors hope to revive ailing health sector, rebuild country

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Dr Mariline Menager is one of 14 people selected from 238 who applied for a place on the medical residency programme at Haiti’s new Mirebalais University Hospital.

She belongs to a new crop of doctors hoping to fill the acute shortage of doctors in Haiti and take the lead in reviving a health sector still struggling to recover from the massive earthquake that flattened the capital Port-au-Prince in January 2010.
