Fuerte Libertad, 10 de septiembre de 2017 - 48 horas han pasado desde el paso de Irma. En palabras del jefe departamental del Ministerio de Educación en el Nordeste, Irma ha sido un "huracán fracasado". Sin embargo, todavía hay consecuencias. Hoy he tenido la oportunidad de visitar varios refugios en Juana Méndez y Fuerte Libertad, las zonas más afectadas, junto con mis colegas Abner y Brice, que se desplazaron a esa zona ya la pasada semana para preparar la llegada de Irma.

PANAMA CITY, 5 September 2017 - In the last few hours, storm Irma has turned into a powerful Category 5 hurricane, the highest possible level in the Saffir-Simpson scale. The hurricane looks likely to be accompanied by strong winds and storms through its likely path through the Caribbean. If it continues in its current track it will bring devastating damage in the next few hours in the territories of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St Maarten, St Kitts and Nevis and the Virgin Islands.

CATS PRINCIPLES

Community Approaches to Total Sanitation (CATS) aim to achieve 100 per cent open defecation free (ODF) communities through affordable, appropriate technology and behaviour change. Some of the key principles guiding CATS are:

• An emphasis on the sustained use of sanitation facilities by every community member, rather than simply the construction of infrastructure.

• The safe disposal of infant and young children’s faeces in toilets.

Le nombre de cas suspects de choléra en Haïti est en baisse – il est passé de plus de 350 000 en 2011 à un peu plus de 41 000 en 2016. Chaque cas suspect de choléra déclenche une intervention rapide afin d’empêcher la propagation de la maladie. Objectif ultime : éliminer le choléra en Haïti à l’horizon 2022.
