A recent study conducted by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) has shown that CBM and partners are playing a crucial role in developing the capacity of the rehabilitation sector in Haiti, after the 2010 earthquake.
Study completed in January 2012
In January 2012 The International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), with great support from the CBM Country Coordination Office in Haiti, completed a nine-month 'Evaluation of Post-Earthquake Physical Rehabilitation Response in Haiti, 2010'.
Findings - CBM 'pivotal link'
Furthermore, a social network analysis reveals that CBM constitutes a pivotal link between various actors in the field of rehabilitation to improve coordination, share expertise and use synergy.
Nevertheless it is also acknowledged that there are still challenges in the coordination of measures and actors and in achieving sustainability according to the needs and potentials in the post-earthquake situation in Haiti.
