In Reporter Sans Frontière’s 2024 world press freedom rankings, Haiti is ranked 93rd out of 180 countries (advanced 6 places) with an overall score of 55.92. For the record in 2022 Haiti was ranked 70th.

Concerning Haiti, the report underlines “ Haitian journalists are victims of a cruel lack of financial resources, lack of support from institutions and difficult access to information. Since 2021, they have also been the target of gangs and are regularly victims of threats, attacks, kidnapping or assassinations, with complete impunity. Since the fall of Ariel Henry’s government in March 2024, journalism has been even more caught between a wave of widespread violence and the social, economic and political crisis. […] As gang control expands over the capital, Port-au-Prince, journalists find themselves confined to a few neighborhoods where they can still carry out their activity, not without risk. […] »
