Ten years after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, which occurred on 12 January 2010, a large-scale impact analysis shows that 90% of surveyed households can meet their basic needs thanks to the aid projects funded by Swiss Solidarity, and that they have been able to re-establish their livelihoods. Up to 2018, with the huge support of the Swiss public, Swiss Solidarity was able to provide nearly CHF 63 million to 91 projects run by 21 partner NGOs. However, despite the positive impact of the support provided, the living conditions of people in Haiti have declined dramatically in recent months owing to political unrest.

An impact study on aid in Haiti run from May to October 2019 by the well-known independent consulting company Key Aid Consulting looked at project documentation and former evaluations. A quantitative survey was conducted among 525 households and a qualitative analysis drawn up in group interviews. The study looked at the way the support provided by NGOs impacted the lives of people following the devastating earthquake in 2010.
