[Port-au-Prince] – The United States government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), donated two PCI Gases’s oxygen generating Vacuum Swing Adsorption (VSA) plants to Haiti. These oxygen generating plants will play a critical role in the national emergency response to COVID-19 by serving more than 750,000 people in hard-to-reach areas of northern Haiti. With emergency COVID-19 support, USAID has created a long-term sustainable solution for oxygen needs for Haiti.
U.S. Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. Eric W. Stromayer remarked, “The U.S. government continues to support the ongoing fight against COVID-19 in Haiti. We reiterate our commitment with this donation from the American people to fortify the medical oxygen ecosystem in Haiti.”

In early June, the two oxygen generating plants were delivered to Hôpital Centre de Bienfaisance de Pignon (CBP), in the North department, and Hôpital Notre Dame de la Paix de Jean-Rabel (HNDP), in the Northwest department of Haiti. USAID worked in collaboration with the National Coordination Unit for the Coronavirus Response, in French Cellule Nationale de Coordination de la Réponse au Coronavirus, of the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP), to select these two hospitals to strategically meet the needs of Haitian people in hard-to-reach locations.
