About our Haiti news

Latest news on Haiti, an island country located in the Caribbean Sea, on the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with the Dominican Republic. It is the third-largest country in the Caribbean by area and the most populous country in the region, with an estimated population of 11.4 million. The capital of Haiti is Port-au-Prince. The island was originally inhabited by the Taíno people, but was claimed by Spain and later ceded to France, which established lucrative sugarcane plantations worked by slaves. The Haitian Revolution, led by former slave Toussaint Louverture, resulted in Haiti becoming the first independent nation of Latin America, the second republic in the Americas, and the first country in the world to abolish slavery.

Since its independence in 1804, Haiti has faced political instability, ostracism by the international community, and economic challenges. It has a history of autocratic rule, including under François and Jean-Claude Duvalier, and has faced natural disasters such as earthquakes and hurricanes. Haiti is a member of various international organisations, including the United Nations and the Organisation internationale de la francophonie. It is a predominantly French-speaking country with a rich cultural heritage and a diverse population.
