Haiti

Internews has over 10 years of experience working in Haiti in collaboration with local organizations and authorities, local journalists, and the international community. Through the implementation of more than 20 multi-donor projects in Haiti, Internews has led efforts to strengthen the role of the media in civil society, provide critical and timely information to affected populations during humanitarian emergencies, and empower authorities to communicate more effectively with citizens about disaster preparedness, health, and reconstruction issues.

Over the past decade, Internews’ efforts have worked to create healthy information ecosystems within Haiti with a range of activities implemented in partnership with local individuals and organizations. These activities include producing humanitarian programming, distributing radios and supporting a network of radio stations, and providing training and support to journalists and local media outlets. For example, Internews supported Haitian government ministries to improve effective communication regarding urban and community development initiatives and worked with Habitat for Humanity International in Canaan.

Through several additional partnerships, Internews continues to work with local media to identify information needs, increase coverage of issues of concern to the local population, and document local efforts that seek to reinforce local sustainability, economic development, resilience, and democracy.
