Dramatic drop in Haitians living in displacement campsListen /
The number of people living in camps in and around Haiti’s capital of Port au Prince has declined by 14% since February, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
IOM says this is the steepest drop since early last year.
Julie Walker reports.
Some 73% of the original population has now left Haiti’s camps since the height of the crisis in 2010.
That's when an estimated 1.5 million people were left homeless by a massive earthquake, which the government says killed up to 300,000 people.
IOM says there are now just over 400,000 Haitians living in camps.
The agency credits the decline on several well-funded programmes providing alternative housing solutions, including rentals for families who were otherwise too poor to leave the camps.
