A lack of fuel has become a new obstacle to healthcare access in Haiti, where generators powered by petroleum derivatives are the main source of electricity in institutions, private establishments and homes.

The organization Doctors of the World warned Sunday of the precarious situation in which there is little fuel left to guarantee hospital services.

According to a member of the organization who wished to remain anonymous, the arrival of fuel had been negotiated for Sunday, but access was blocked.

A nationwide mobilization is to take place from Monday to protest the shortage of fuel, and insecurity, in the country.
