Haiti first participated in the Paralympic Games in 2008, sending a single athlete, Nephtalie Jean-Louis, to compete in powerlifting.[1] Due to unspecified "problems with her weight", however, Jean-Louis was ultimately unable to compete, and was listed as a non-starter in her event (powerlifting).[2]

Thus it was only at the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London that Haitian athletes competed for the first time, the country was represented by two athletes: Nephtalie Jean-Louis, in the shot put and javelin rather than in powerlifting; and Josue Cajuste, also in the shot put and javelin.[2]

Haiti's participation in the Paralympics is overseen by the Comité National Paralympique d'Haïti.[1]
