Almost two years after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake devastated Haiti on January 12, 2010, claiming more than 200,000 lives, the country is hobbling along the path to recovery.

A new president, Michel Martelly, took office on May 14. After two attempts to install a new head of government, Prime Minister Garry Conille received parliamentary approval on October 5 - a move many hope will energize reconstruction efforts.

So where does Haiti go from here?
