In 2011 Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) opened a new obstetric emergency hospital in Delmas, a busy neighbourhood in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. The 143-bed facility treats pregnant women with severe complications, offering a maternity ward, obstetric surgery, family planning and psychosocial support. It replaced MSF’s previous emergency obstetric hospital that was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake.
