Early Start to Rainy Season Brings Cholera Spike

Since cholera was brought to Haiti by UN peacekeepers in 2010, each rainy season has brought concerns of a surge in cholera cases. This year was no different as the rainy season arrived early, signalling a harsh year for Haitians without proper water and sanitation. While the UN still maintains its commitment to eradicating cholera, it still hasn’t accepted responsibility for the epidemic or provided redress to the victims. Meanwhile, cholera treatment centers continue to treat new patients.   Cholera Surges In Haiti As Rain Arrives Early Peter Granitz, NPR May 28, 2015   At a government-run clinic in Diquini, near Port-au-Prince, doctors are treating a handful of cholera patients.

Haiti Still Struggles to Treat the Cholera Epidemic

Four years after cholera was introduced to Haiti by UN peacekeepers, the response to the epidemic remains inadequate. Water and sanitation infrastructure have barely been improved and the Haitian health system has a shortage of medicines to treat cholera. Even cholera treatment centers lack beds, making it difficult for organizations like Doctors without Borders to respond. Improvements need to be made soon to prevent more people from dying.
