Spinal Cord Injury Working Group

In early 2010, the Haiti Spinal Cord Injury Working Group was formed to collaborate for the improved treatment of patients with spinal cord injuries (SCI). The purpose of the group is to increase knowledge and understanding of local health care workers in this specialist area of physical rehab medicine. The mission is to reduce the known morbidity and mortality risks associated with spinal cord injury and the ultimate aim is to train the trainers.

For a general overview of the work conducted by the group, download the report here.

Haiti SCI Confidential Database

The Haiti SCI (confidential) Database was created in March 2010, to try to identify and understand the issues surrounding spinal cord injury (SCI) in Haiti, and is coordinated by Fiona Stephenson RN.

It has been established that the majority of patients with SCI sustained in the earthquake (especially with complete/incomplete paraplegia) are still alive almost two years post trauma. It is the opinion of the Haiti SCI Working Group that these vulnerable men, women and children with disabilities are generally living longer if they receive appropriate care, and that this apparent increase in health status is directly related to NGO’s providing specific SCI care, education of local staff, patients and care givers, introduction of intermittent catheterisation to patients as well as an emphasis on position changes, pressure ulcer risk assessment (Waterlow Tool) and skin care.

Statistics are only as good as the information provided; Out of 300 cases known, 145 were earthquake related. The main cause of SCI since the earthquake, of January 2010, is due to gun violence. The majority of these patients are young men.

To register a person with a spinal cord injury please fill in the Haiti SCI Database information form and email to fistephenson@gmail.com. Be sure to mark 'Confidential' in the subject heading.

This data is only a glimpse of the reality in Haiti, and there is a lot more work to be done to get a true picture. Thank you in advance for your help.
