This report – From sustaining lives to sustainable solutions: the challenge of sanitation in Haiti – emphasises that humanitarian agencies running sanitation services is not a sustainable solution for Haiti, and resources and innovative solutions are urgently needed to support Haitian authorities to take over this role and provide improved sanitation services to the two million people affected by the earthquake.

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, led by the Haitian Red Cross, has, to date, provided basic sanitation to some 240,000 people in the form of toilets, hygiene promotion, and clean water.

However, despite considerable achievements, at least half of the directly affected population are yet to see any improvement in their sanitation and water situation.
As the reconstruction effort continues, the focus is shifting to ensuring that those returning to their homes or moving to transitional shelters will have access to adequate sanitation.

The integration of sanitation into reconstruction plans is critical for a healthy future.
