- Law Reforming Adoption
Author(s): Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor (MAST)
Primary Language: English
In October 2013, the Haitian government passed a law to regularize adoption. This new law focuses on children's best interests and aims to promote international adoption as a last-resort measure after reviewing all the national options. The USAID-funded Health Policy Project AKSE program reproduced the text of the law in this booklet to make it accessible to actors in the child protection chain and to promote its application through trainings for Haitian judicial actors and dissemination among human rights NGOs.
