Education on cholera prevention is key

The rainy season in Haiti has meant marked increases in the rates of cholera infections, especially in the rural parts provinces.  These rises are making it especially difficult for those that are sick to receive timely treatment - several Cholera Treatment Centers (CTC’s) have closed thanks to a lack of funding or a presumed lack of need (cholera rates were declining prior to the start of the rainy season).

 

Visit Lambi Fund’s cholera statistics page to get updated information on the cholera outbreak.  This page features maps spotlighting the distribution and intensity of cholera throughout the country, which help visualize the epidemic.

 

Since infection rates continue to rise, Lambi Fund is continuing to provide education on cholera prevention and awareness to communities throughout rural Haiti.  Prevention is essential for many communities in rural Haiti because CTC’s are so hard to come by.
