    Haiti: Cholera cases double from previous year
    Written by Samuel Maxime on 30 March 2015.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (sentinel.ht) - Experts say Cholera will continue to kill and infect citizens as long as they lack access to clean water and sanitation. This information comes as suspected cases and deaths have doubled in January and February compared to the year prior and twenty of the nation's communes are on red alert.

    The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) reports that during the first two months of this year, cholera cases totaled 7,225, including 86 deaths - higher than recorded during the same period in 2012 and 2014. The resurgence of the disease began in October of last year and has continued on.

    In the communes on red alert, the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP) says 440 cases have already been recorded for the 10th epidemiological week, March 3-9 2015. In certain critical communes, the numbers are: in Port-au-Prince, 65 cases, St Marc, 60 , Cabaret, 47 and in Tabarre, 40 cases...

    Haiti: senior UN official says cholera outbreak needs ‘urgent attention’

    14 May 2015 – The cholera outbreak in Haiti remains the largest in recent world history, according to the United Nations official coordinating the Organization’s cholera response in the country, yet the health crisis has fallen off the international agenda after having ceased appearing in the media.

    “When cooperation funds dry up, the response teams on the ground no longer have resources to adequately respond to alerts, treat patients and prevent further deaths,” wrote Pedro Medrano Rojas, the Senior Coordinator for the Cholera Response in Haiti, in an opinion piece published in Wiener Zeitung.

    Mr. Medrano said the epidemic has caused 9,000 deaths and affected more than 735,000 people since October 2010 when the outbreak began in the aftermath of the earthquake.

          Cholera eradication in Haiti will take ‘some years,’ says outgoing UN coordinator

          30 June 2015 – While some 16,000 new cases of cholera have been reported in Haiti so far this year, the disease is now under control but it will not be eradicated unless improving water and sanitation conditions are given a higher priority by both the Government and donors, says the outgoing United Nations official tasked with leading the response to the outbreak.

          “And in today’s world, in the 21st century, it’s not acceptable to have this huge number of cases of cholera,” Pedro Medrano Rojas said in an interview with the UN News Service, as he wrapped up his assignment as UN Senior Coordinator for the Response to Cholera in Haiti.

          Any country with this number of new cases of cholera would declare it an “emergency,” added Mr. Medrano, who served in the post for two years.
