Haiti Cholera Response: Mid-Year Update (January - July 2014)

The cholera epidemic in Haiti has affected an unacceptable number of people with around 705,400 suspected cases and an estimated 8,500 deaths reported from October 2010 to 31 July 2014. Limited rains in 2014 and the response of the Government of Haiti (GoH) with the support of the UN and partners has led the number of projected cases for the year to be revised downward to 15,000 from an initial projection of 45,000. Despite a significant reduction in the incidence of cholera, Haiti continues to host the largest cholera epidemic in the western hemisphere.

Haiti : Humanitarian Dashboard (January - March 2014)

SITUATION OVERVIEW

Between January and March 2014, the key humanitarian concern revolved around the deterioration of the food security in the North-West Department. This is the result of the combined effects of the lack of viable coping mechanisms due to the extreme poverty of the population and the poor spring and winter harvest as well as the prolonged drought since November 2013. An estimated 143,000 people are affected by this situation.

Haiti : Tableau de bord humanitaire (janvier - mars 2014)

APERÇU DE LA SITUATION

Entre janvier et mars 2014, la situation humanitaire a été marquée par la détérioration de la sécurité alimentaire dans le département du Nord-Ouest. Ceci est le résultat des effets combinés du manque de mécanismes d'adaptation viables en raison de l'extrême pauvreté de la population et des mauvaises récoltes de printemps et d’hiver, ainsi que la sécheresse prolongée depuis novembre 2013. Selon les estimations, 143 000 personnes sont touchées par cette situation.
