What is the future outlook?
The direct correlation between heavy rains and rising cholera cases is evident in many departments; and the rainy season in Haiti is fast approaching. Therefore Plan is keeping up our hygiene awareness campaigns and water and sanitation activities to prevent future outbreaks. The consensus among experts is that cholera will never completely recede from Haiti. But all-around decreased funding for cholera is causing concern that the NGOs may not be able to adequately fill the gaps—that the local health authorities cannot cover, especially in hard-to-reach communities—which are almost certain to come during the rainy season.
Future work planned :
1st Level treatment: Oral Rehydration Point (ORP)
2nd Level treatment (more advanced): Cholera Treatment Unit (CTU)
