200 community latrines to avoid well contamination in Lower Artibonite

PORT-AU-PRINCE [ACTED News] -- Lower Artibonite, a two-hour drive from the Haitian capital, is the area where the cholera epidemic broke out in October 2010.
Frequently exposed to flooding from the Artibonite river, the region is crippled by a lack of health infrastructures, which seriously increases the risk of spreading water-borne, feco-oral and vector-borne diseases, including cholera.
In order to strengthen the health situation in a sustainable manner, ACTED has just completed construction of 200 community latrines, with support from Chemonics.
