      <ArticleTitle>Health Disparity in Haiti Due to the Economic System of the Country</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Haiti’s health system is described as a catastrophic situation when compared to other countries in that region, such as Dominican Republic which shares the same island known as Hispaniola and its neighboring country, Cuba. Haiti’s population faces both health disparity and health inequity. The country is very vulnerable with regard to its location geographically. The country is constantly affected by natural disaster, for example the 2010 7.0 magnitude earthquake, which devastated the island, killing roughly 250,000 and 300,000 people, were injured according to Irvin and Horugavye (2012). Most recently the country was faced with another deadly natural disaster, hurricane Mathew in 2016, six years after a devastated earthquake, which crippled the country even more than before the earthquake. Haiti’s unemployment rate for 2018 at 13.53% when compared to Cuba and DR respectively, they have shown 2.26% and 5.83. Haiti’s high rate of unemployment automatically objectify its population to health inequities, where many Haitians inherited unfairness due to their low socio-economic status. The information described above has displayed clearly how vulnerable the country is and have shown the economic gap and health disparity that exist within the population. These reports among others are indeed shocking and must be shared in a global sphere in order to figure out a feasible approach that can solve this fatal problem for the Haitian people.</Abstract>
