The United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) was established pursuant to Security Council resolution 1542 (2004) on 1 June 2004. The mission’s original mandate included the restoration of a secure and safe environment, promotion of a fair and democratic political process, and the protection of human rights. The earthquake which occurred in Haiti on 12 January 2010, resulting in the deaths of 96 UN peacekeepers, led to an increase in the overall force levels of MINUSTAH as well as a shift in its mandate to support he immediate recover, reconstruction and stability efforts in the country.
