Jérémie (Jeremi in Kréyòl) is the capital city of the department of Grand'Anse, in Haiti, with a population of about 31,000 (2003 census). It is almost isolated from the rest of the country. The Grande-Anse River flows near the city.
In the aftermath of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, a food aide convoy transporting aide delivered to Jérémie Airport through Jérémie, encountered a hijacking attempt by 20 men, on Saturday 30 January 2010. Medical supplies have also been airlifted through the airport, due to the increase in medical need from injured refugees arriving in the wake of the quake.
The city has an airport, Jérémie Airport.
