January 12, 2015 marked five years since Haiti suffered a horrendous earthquake that thrust its most vulnerable citizens into even greater jeopardy. Much remains to be done in terms of human rights in Haiti, but significant progress has been made in protecting the rights of children and women, especially in legislation. Futures Group, through the Health Policy Project, supported the government of Haiti—in collaboration with the School of Magistrates (French acronym EMA), IBESR, and MCFDF— to train 150 judges and other social protection stakeholders on the application and implementation of these updated laws.
