* UNICEF flagship report: From bullets to babies in Haiti's Choscal Hospital
* Asset Duration: 02 min 57 secs
* Shoot City: Cite Soleil, Port-au-Prince
* Shoot Country: Haiti
* Shoot Date: 23 Sep 2008


Maculene just delivered her third baby. He's healthy. She's happy. They're packing to go home just hours after they
arrived at this hospital in the heart of Cite Soleil.


Once a site of unchecked gang violence, today this sprawling shanty town in Haiti's capital is plagued mostly by
endemic poverty, illiteracy, and unemployment.


No one struggles in this country … than the women who are raising families.


SOUNDBITE (English) Mireille Tribié, UNICEF Health Specialist:
"The women have 6 to 8 children to care for and very little resources. The country doesn't have a lot to offer. For the women it’s even worse."


Choscal hospital plays a huge part in the lives of women and children.


The present lull in armed violence has allowed the Unicef-supported health center to focus less on gunshots and more on life-saving interventions.


These mothers have brought their malnourished children to the feeding center where some will stay up to eight weeks.


The mothers sleep on the floor, bring food from outside, and try to follow the recommendations of the trained nurses to bring their babies back to health.


27 year old Naomi is here with her 6th child – she says the baby is recovering well from the vomiting and diarrhoea
associated with malnutrition. But she also says she will not be able to afford the prescriptions and other fees to keep
her baby healthy.


In Choscal, as everywhere, money is an issue.


SOUNDBITE (French) Jacquelin Saint-Fleur, Director Choscal Hospital:
"The reality is simple. As everyone knows, this is an impoverished neighbourhood, where people can’t afford to pay for prescriptions but we have no choice, from our perspective. Because our budget from the Ministry of Health is very small, and doesn’t cover all the hospital’s needs. So we are in a situation, where we have to have a system to recoup our costs."


The Haitian government is making efforts to reduce the country’s maternal mortality rates.


SOUNDBITE (English) Mireille Tribié, UNICEF Health Specialist:
"There is a movement to get the women informed and to attract them to the clinic to receive prenatal care and also to be followed."


UNICEF advocates the expansion of a new free obstetric care program piloted at Choscal. And will continue to finance paediatric nutrition and vaccination programs for the 300 babies born here every month.
