Global health news: Harvard continues to help Haiti rebuilding efforts

Harvard Humanitarian Initiative Director Michael VanRooyen is quoted in a Harvard Crimson article about Harvard’s ongoing efforts to help Haiti rebuild following the devastating earthquake earlier this year. VanRooyen is an associate professor in the HSPH Department of Global Health and Population (GHP). Money raised at a recent benefit concert in Boston will go toward construction of a new Partners in Health hospital in Haiti; Paul Farmer, professor in GHP, is a co-founder of Partners in Health, which has run clinics in Haiti for more than 20 years.
