UN Cuts Won on Haiti Force in the Midst of Cholera Controversy | Medindia


The epidemic has killed more than 8,300 people since it started in October 2010 and made more than 679,000 sick. It has been traced to a river next to a UN camp where Nepalese troops were based.

A Security Council resolution which extended the mandate of the UN mission in Haiti, MINUSTAH, noted government efforts to \”control and eliminate\” the epidemic.

It urged \”United Nations entities in coordination with other relevant actors to continue to support the government of Haiti in addressing the structural weaknesses, in particular in the water and sanitation systems\” in the impoverished Caribbean nation. via | Medindia.
