The project consisted of replacing the temporary tents used as laboratories following the earthquake on 12 January 2010 with prefabricated buildings in order to perform biological activities in a clean, safe and well-adapted environment, fit to admit sick patients.

Fondation Mérieux, along with the Institute Mérieux and Fondation Christophe et Rodolphe Mérieux, continue to support their partners in Haiti, bringing much-needed help to the earthquake victims.
