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.
