International Agencies attacking Cholera in Haiti on Several Fronts

UNICEF and non-government organizations have partnered with Haiti's Ministry of Public Health and Population to make emergency visits, utilizing mobile units, to any suspected cholera cases within two days.

In July 2014 UN Secretary General Ki-Moon, along with Prime Minister Lamothe, began a 5-year national sanitation initiative to build easy-to-construct, economical toilets.

Haiti has experienced a significant drop in cholera cases from 2011 to 2013 as a result of proactive measures, including immunization campaigns.
