"Stabilization process" underway in Haiti

Mariano Fernandez visits a school in Haiti

The election of a new President in Haiti earlier this year has led to what a senior UN envoy to the country has called a "stabilization process" in the country.

Haiti has suffered a major earthquake and a cholera outbreak in the space of two years in which thousands of people died.

The cholera outbreak was widely blamed by Haitians on the UN peacekeeping mission, MINUSTAH.

Mariano Fernandez the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General to Haiti says there has been progress but challenges remain.

"Political violence has been reduced to almost nil. We have, of course, crime and violence in the shanty towns, domestic violence, abuses against women. And this makes the task of the United Nations force there very difficult."
