Haiti still recorded over 1,100 cholera cases a week in 2013 – The Global Dispatch


In their latest Epidemiological Update on Cholera, the health agency reports, “In 2013, there has been an average of 1,120 cholera cases and 9 deaths per week.

Over 1,000 cases a week three years after the outbreak began seems astounding; however, it’s not to one of the authors of the Yale University report, “Peacekeeping Without Accountability” released earlier this year.

Dr. Rosalyn Chan with The Global Health Justice Partnership of Yale Law school told me in an interview in August, “the cholera outbreak (in Haiti) is expected to go on for at least another decade.” via – The Global Dispatch
