Jean-Max Bellerive (born 1958) is the current Prime Minister of Haiti.

Married and a father of two girls, Bellerive was born in Port-au-Prince in 1958. As the son of a prominent doctor, he left Haiti at a very young age to study in Switzerland, France, and Belgium. With a degree in Political Science and International Relations, Bellerive returned to Haiti in 1986, just before the overthrow of Jean-Claude Duvalier.

Current Haitian President René Préval, in following the orders of a senate resolution, nominated Bellerive on October 30, 2009, to replace former Prime Minister Michèle Pierre-Louis. A day before the nomination, on October 29, 2009, 18 senators of a 29-member senate voted to dismiss Pierre-Louis on charges that she was poorly performing in leading Haiti's economic recovery efforts.
