The more I think about the situation in Haiti, the more I feel convinced there are two and only two primary solutions to its long-term survival:

water management policy (and all that it entails: effective government = infrastructure –> transition from NGOs managing and running the country, to the governent doing so and thereby having the Haitian people holding government accountable)

mental health policy (and all that it entails: mental HEALTH = effective education –> a health care system that, along with infectious disease and public health, deals with matters of gender violence, crisis and trauma, education of and for conciliatory approaches to societal fracture)
