Highlights

  • There are currently 30 CTCs, 169 CTUs, and 766 ORPs functioning in-country.

  • The end of the rainy season contributes to a considerable drop in cholera cases. Currently, an average of 300 cases per day has been observed all over the country, in comparison to 500 cases per day last month. The department currently reporting the highest mortality rates is the West.

  • The number of cholera cases is stable or decreasing in the departments of North, North-East, Artibonite, Center, West, South-East, South and Grand Anse, whereas cases in the North-West, are increasing and in Nippes department, the situation can be described as unstable with small peaks.

  • With the approaching of the end of the year, short-term cholera funding is coming to an end while some long-term funding is not yet available. More and more NGOs are withdrawing from their intervention area for lack of funding. This will pose further threats and limitations to the cholera response.
