Fighting Cholera in Haiti – NYTimes.com


20140420CHOLERA-slide-7H31-jumboRe “Haiti in the Shadow of Cholera” (editorial, April 24): Our public-private coalition shares your frustration with the persistence of Haiti’s cholera epidemic and is working overtime to help the victims and to raise the millions of dollars for the clean water and sanitation that you rightly point out will be necessary to rid the country of the disease.

Despite the direness of the situation, we have had successes. For example, under the leadership of Haiti’s government, we have helped improve the system for detecting and rapidly responding to cases. We have trained health care workers and provided tons of medical equipment. We have chlorinated water and vaccinated people. via – NYTimes.comNYTo.
