WHO/PAHO have played an essential role in helping Haitians setup health service after the earthquake. After the disaster, the WHO/PAHO Programme for Essential Medicines (PROMESS) delivered basic medicines immediately from a warehouse in the capital. Since the earthquake, PROMESS has been a clearing house for donated medicines and has provided other pharmaceuticals for free to regular clientele and to the mobile and temporary clinics.
