Haiti Earthquake 2010
Direct Relief procured medicines specifically requested by our partners on the ground in Haiti. Outside of the organization’s standing inventory, this initial procurement includes local anesthetics, analgesics (acetaminophen, ibuprofen), antibiotics (ceftriaxone, amoxicillin, doxycycline), antiparasitic agents, and water purification tablets.
Our partners have reported that primary health concerns were infection-control and prevention for the many wounded and displaced. For patients receiving treatment for their injuries, basic medicines like analgesics and antibiotics play an important role in their recovery.
Direct Relief is in close touch with partners caring for Haitians affected by the earthquake and is committed to responding to needs as they develop. Donations from individuals, foundations, and companies help make this work possible.
