Breaking the Cycle of Failure in Haitian Foreign Aid

TEDxBeaconStreet · February 2013

Since the tragic earthquake in January 2010, Haiti has received billions of dollars in foreign aid. But 3 years later, the most common question continues to be, “”Where did all the money go?”” Dr. David Walton, who has spent 15 years in Haiti with the organization Partners In Health, follows the money trail and offers a new paradigm for foreign aid in the context of PIH’s effort with the national government to build one of the largest and most advanced teaching hospitals in the country.
