Armed Forces of Haiti

The Armed Forces of Haiti (French: Forces Armées d'Haïti—FAd'H), consisted of the Haitian Army, Haitian Navy (at times), the Haitian Air Force, Haitian Coast Guard, and some police forces (Port-au-Prince Police). The Army was always the dominant service with the others serving primarily in a support role. The name of Haiti's military was changed from the Garde d'Haiti to the Forces Armées d'Haïti—FAd'H in 1958 during the rule of François Duvalier. After years of military interference in politics, including dozens of military coups, Haiti disbanded its military in 1995.On 17 November 2017, the Defence Force of Haiti was remobilized by President Jovenel Moise. The President suspended the previous Executive orders by then President Aristide who suspended and disbanded the armed forces on 6 December 1995.
