Solvens Elvens, is one of the student doctors working in Dr Marhône’s clinic. He plans on staying in Haiti after graduation to practice gynaecology. “It’s up to us, as Haitians, to change this country”, he said. Some of his colleagues will choose to go abroad. It is estimated that about half of Haiti's doctors and nurses leave the country to practice elsewhere.
