Haiti Disaster Response Resources

Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, IDSA encourages members to contribute to disaster relief efforts. Please check the Society’s website for links to global relief and response resources. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go to the victims in Haiti.

As ID specialists, we are especially aware of the vital need to not only aid the disaster recovery but also prevent the spread of infectious diseases from becoming yet another terrible result of the earthquake. Several members have generously expressed a desire to help and encouraged the Society to be involved. IDSA will continue to monitor opportunities for members to volunteer their services and update our website as these arise.

To date, however, calls for immediate help have targeted primarily those with experience in responding to disasters, including those with trauma and surgical experience. As these needs change during the recovery effort, IDSA will alert members to opportunities to volunteer their service and expertise that complement the experienced relief organizations already on the ground in Haiti.

If you are aware of venues for relief or aid that you think would be useful to IDSA members, please e-mail us.
