In Haiti, it is a core function of the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP)—through its Directorate of Health Service Organization (Direction d’Organisation des services de la santé, DOSS)—to define the set of health services to which every Haitian must have access and to enable and equip health providers and facilities to effectively, equitably, and accountably provide those services.
