Market Analysis Summary & IHI Survey Estimate of Average Haitian Citizen’s Capacity to Pay for Cancer Treatment

Haiti has a population of 10 million, translating to 2 million households (IHSI 2018). Based on estimate by DeGennaro et. al. (2016), at any given time the number of women in Haiti in need of treatment for breast cancer is 2,250. The expected number of new cases each year is 600. Yet, the number of women being treated in 2017 was only 1,175, less than half those suffering from the disease.
