[Correspondence] Instability adversely affects HIV care in Haiti

Fragile states are characterised by the intersection of weak governments and weak health systems. Since the 2010 earthquake, Haiti has been in a prolonged period of political upheaval, public health crises, and natural disaster.1 A public health worker strike beginning in Port-au-Prince in March, 2016, spread throughout the country and ended only recently. We report the effects the strike has had on care since April, 2016, at two public hospitals (table): Hôpital St Michel in Jacmel and Hôpital St Antoine in Jérémie.
