Germs for hepatitis, cholera and chronic diarrhea are carried through water used for cooking and drinking. Additionally the absence of a sewage sanitation system has contaminated nearly every water source with human waste, further exacerbated by natural calamities such as hurricanes and the recent earthquake.

Le niveau élevé des prix et le choléra affectent la sécurité alimentaire

De 515 cas d'hospitalisation par jour jusqu'au 16 janvier, ce nombre journalier est passé à 377 au 30 janvier, selon le Ministère de la Santé Publique et de la Population.

Under current plans, there will not be enough housing solutions by the end of the year to resolve Haiti's displacement crisis, says IOM.

The problem is particularly acute in the metropolitan area, with limited space and uncertainty over land ownership.

"Hundreds of thousands of Haitians are likely still to be living in displacement camps by the end of 2011," Luca Dall'Oglio, IOM Haiti's Chief of Mission warned.

Numbers of displaced people living in camps had fallen from an estimated high of 1.5 million in July 2010 to 810,000 in January 2011.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - The one-year anniversary of the Haiti earthquake was a somber day for many, but at Zanmi Beni Children's Home, it was also a celebration-a celebration of recovery.

The staff and children at Zanmi Beni took the opportunity to celebrate their healing and recovery by planting a tree in honor of each of the 48 children living there.

Children took turns helping to dig holes, plant the young saplings-which included several varieties of citrus and breadfruit-and water them.

"The event was wonderful," said OBI's David Darg.
