This video came about by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative asking basically whether I wanted to interview some of the leading experts in their field, to which the answer was obviously yes, so big thanks to them. They make some fantastic videos diving a little deeper into the field of humanitarian response, including one that just came out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o95BOm0Y5a8&t=1s

That mother was flinching WAY harder than her baby ever did after getting the shot. Kudos to her for still letting them vaccinate despite her premeditated fears. Too bad kids react how a parent does / expects them to. So if the mom wasn't afraid, neither would the child have been. Afraid.

I don't understand why nations don't use their military combat support hospitals that are ready 24/7, are organized for trauma, biologic, or chemical injuries, can mobilize in minutes, are heavily coordinated, cam treat 1000 patients per hour per unit, have air, land a sea resources, repeatedly exercise and train for action, can be transported anywhere in the world and are well versed in emergency triage and stabilization. They have field portable hospitals, ships, planes, manpower that can travel any terrain, and know how to get there and maintain supply, as well are provide security, and order in the midst of chaos. They've been around since the 1940s, in the 1950s as MASH units. Civilian resources can be modeled after them to take over once CSH deploy and then later leave and Harvard needn't reinvent the wheel for emergency responders, but they could add method to permanently establish facilities and deal with local politics and corruption, until the home government gets organized, if ever.

You should do a video covering Canadian airlines and why it's so ridiculously expensive to fly domestically in the country. For ex: it's cheaper to fly Vancouver to Asia or Vancouver to Europe then it is to fly to Toronto/Montreal/Halifax.

What sucks more is that the politicians in Haiti are corrupt so the billions that are flowing in as aid is being swindled into offshore accounts - and this is being facilitated by large international banks such as Standard Chartered from supposedly developed countries claiming moral superiority.

I have a friend in the army reserves, and one of the things he was always concerned about was the ability for local hospitals and clinics to be used as casualty collection points. Not a single hospital in my country (Philippines) is capable for a mass casualty event, either the hospital itself is incapable, or the infrastructure surrounding it is not effective enough for so many vehicles coming in and out. One of his examples was, if ever there was a school or equally large organisation in a compound that gets bombed or shot up, the fastest response that will arrive will only be security on site, police units on motorbikes, and helicopters if there is space to land. Even more worse was if the disaster was natural, where elements and factors were not under control of the responders. Thousands would die simply because help wasn’t able to arrive on time or conduct themselves efficiently.

Customs after a disaster? Are you kidding me? That is about the stupidest thing I've ever heard with regard to government. If the government cannot take care of its people after a disaster, get out of the way – like get the hell out of the way completely. The government was useless in good times; how much more useless after a disaster. Disgusting!

Why is everyone making fun of Wendover Productions for doing logistics and airplanes? That's just what he likes. Nvm. The comments are funny
Tristan Cole (1 month ago)
Interesting video, but you missed such an interesting and important component of disaster response - cash transfers. They now make up over 10% of disaster response funding as they’re empowering for locals, transparent for donors and have a strong multiple effect in a community. Haiti is a unique example as it’s a whole island nation, but with many disasters, they’re only localised you a region.

Hey Sam! I really like your videos. It's a fun way to learn new things every week and I thank you for that. I was hoping if you could try to do a video of the economics of Formula 1, since you have already done a video talking about the logistics of the sport and it was very detailed. If you could do it I would be really thankful 😊

Just hearing about the way that the air traffic was handled restored my faith in humans. Those people sat out there in the blazing heat, just so they could control the massive influx of planes using tiny radios and their expertise. It was more than just a job to them, it was a necessary deed for the sake of the human race. When you so often hear about all the bad in the world, you start to lose sight of the good. These people are the good in the world that need to be revered, rewarded, and idolized.

It's so strange that someone so educated doesn't seem to understand that a fuel filter is a standard part of all modern vehicles. Or, to put it another way, WTF was supposedly leaking into these gas station tanks? There should be multiple levels of protection to keep, say, water, out even if the tanks ruptured.

Thanks for the back story, I flew into PoP regularly, before and after the earthquake for a few years... It was amazing the amount of logistics happening all over the airfield...air plane had supplies and loads of church group volunteers and UN personell...but I never got the whole story on how they handled ATC...other than you could see the 'temporary' tower and the destroyed old tower.

There's actually a fourth reason why the humanitarian disaster lasted for so many years; Hillary Clinton. This isn't just some flippant comment, there's a reason why Haitians hate the Clintons so much, it's because the humanitarian effort that the Secretary of State (Hillary) engaged in did absolutely nothing to help Haiti. The Clinton Foundation and various groups associated with them pocketed most of the money instead of rebuilding communities. There are many documentaries and articles about her blatant corruption regarding Haiti (nevermind all the other stuff). Haitian-Americans were one of the most vocal groups that opposed her when she ran for President in 2016.
