Haiti: Cholera figures (Jan-Feb 2015)

Originally published


The total number of cholera cases decreased significantly in 2014. However, delayed rains, compounded by deficiencies in the Port-au-Prince water-supply network, including illegal tapping and a deficient alert and coordination system, resulted in a drastic increase in the number of cases and deaths in the last quarter of the year. This worrying trend continues in 2015 and highlights the need to increase cholera contingency measures ahead of the upcoming rainy season (April - May).
