Haiti: 'Too much has remained the same'

Dr. Sanjay Gupta returns to Port-au-Prince  and is dismayed to find too little progress:  empty examining rooms, unpaid nurses,  few resources and heartbreaking, unnecessary death. Read more of his frustration.

Watch his full report tonight on "AC360," 10 p.m. ET.

    If we'd just stop helping them, they'll learn. See how these simple solutions elude U.S.

      1,000,000 Haitians sitting in the rubble waiting for aid, what if each of them removed maybe 20 chunks of cement each day, by now the streets would be clear. NEXT!!

      People in countries like Haiti, and Somalia, and the Kongo, etc., should take care of their own freaking countries! If I thought that a significant portion of their populations were actually TRYING to have SOME national pride and empathy for their own people, I'd want to help them, but as long as the OBVIOUSLY don't care about either of those thing, TO HELL WITH THEM!

    NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE IN HAITIA.....UNTILL SOMEONE HANDS OUT BIRTH CONTROL PILLS...AND WE KNOW THE CATHOLIC CHURCH DOMINATES POLITICS THERE......Millions of people, no education, no hope, not too many skills, over populated and that many people only breeds & breeds.....Like the slums of India....too many peple and all want the rich people to help them.....BUY EM BIRTH CONTOL PILLS....and start giving people hope.....rather than another mouth to feed that they can;t afford to even feed themselves???

    Money will not change Haiti. Change needs to come from within a country and the people there may talk about it but they do not have the will to do it. Even their presdent is a slacker who disappeared after the earthquake. Billions will be spent to "rebuild" Haiti but within 5 years, it will look as it did before. I'm not saying we (the international community) should abandon Haiti but I feel we should only be taking care of the humanitatian part of it and leave the rebuilding to the Haitians. If they want a better country and billions to rebuild...prove it first.

    So, it's back to the way it was before the quake. Also known as, "Nothing to report here." Thanks Gupta! Why do these news reports try to lead us to believe there are no able-bodied adults around? As though the entire country is comprised of only starving children and cripple elderly. So Gupta's dismayed. How many time did you go to Haiti before the quake? Think this is the only country with tough living conditions?

    Under ObamaCare, the miseries are going to get much worse in the US as well.....without an earthquake.

    Then tell the alleged charities to pony up the rest of the money to help. Many of them haven't even used half of it yet, and are making excuses to keep it.

    First, we have to fight corruption and red tape and everything will move forward...
    Stop injecting money into a country, where we do not know where the money goes.
    Paying duties at the airports and the harbors to bring in aids and reliefs ???
    Does not make any sense...
