Cholera still Major Threat to Haitians

Haiti's cholera epidemic has yet to be tamed, claiming 132 lives in 2014 and afflicting 14,869 others. A considerable increase in cholera cases in Port-au-Prince has been occurring due to heavy rains, with 2,000-plus victims needing emergency hospitalization in the last two months.

The problems are no availability to clean water and toilets; no recovery beds; and no urgent care facilities. The bottom line Medecins Sans Frontieres says is "Haiti's health system still can't meet the needs of cholera patients."
