The people of Haiti are still facing challenges at the level of political, economic and humanitarian challenges, as per the United Nations (UN).

The Head of the UN Integrated Office in Haiti and the Special Representative of the United Nations, Helen La Lime, outlined a need for structural reforms to tackle gang violence, address impunity and corruption, strengthen the justice system and sustainably transform the economy in Haiti.

While emphasizing the significance of the boost in the economic sector, La Lime asserted,” The development of Haiti is somehow dependent upon the stakeholders of the country if it would be placing it in the concern of the national interests above their own aspirations”.

She further asserted that various other Criminal armed groups had halted the lives of millions as they have been using the economic and social sector in Haiti and noted,” The cries such as abduction, murder, as well as sexual and gender-based violence should be combated to pave Haiti on the way of development and progress”.

However, the National Police of Haiti have tried a lot to combat the incident of violence in the country, but the country is posing the threat of gang-generated insecurity. Moreover, the United Nations and Haitian Government also tried to resolve the various issues and strengthen the economy of the country; as per La Lime.
