Wheat fortification recommended for women and children in Haiti

Haiti could prevent the death of approximately 140 women and infants yearly. A recent study conducted by The UC Davis Team found that deaths often caused by neural-tube defects and anemia among women and children could be prevented by just adding some iron and folic acid to the wheat flour during the milling process.

The researchers estimated that it would cost around $5 million to invest in the Wheat fortification project over a period of 12 years. However, the benefits would be o0ver $120 million in benefits over the same period.

Attempt to decrease infant mortality rate in Haiti with diapers

According to reports of some UNICEF social workers, inadequate diapering is a huge contributor to diarrhea and worm infestations in Haitian babies. An entrepreneur is coming up with an idea to decrease Infant Mortality Rate in Haiti.

Jake's Diapers, Inc. is a 501(c) 3, non-profit ministry whose mission is to provide cloth diapers to babies, children, and adults in extreme poverty, especially in countries like Haiti. About six years ago, Stephanie Bowers, the Executive Director of Jake's Diapers once visited an orphanage in Pachacutec, Peru. There she saw that the caregivers, although their love for the babies was beyond doubt, were forced to reuse disposable diapers. They were doing their best with their only available option and that was a forced pick between diaper and food. This unthinkable choice happens every day for many rural Haitian families.

Rotavirus vaccine to fight infant mortality in Haiti

Child Statistics In Haiti

Many infant mortality in Haiti are caused by diarrhea that can lead to dehydration, vomiting and fever. Often, these are the symptom of a virus called: Rotavirus.

Rotavirus infections spread easily in settings where many children are together. It is obtained through contact with the stool from an infected child. It is estimated that rotavirus disease is taking the lives of close to 2,500 Haitian children every year.

Due to its high contagious rate, just an improvement in drinking water, sanitation or hygiene would not solve the problem. Vaccination has been determined to be the best method to stop the spread of rotavirus.
