Haiti - Cholera : UN suggests reallocation of unused funds from Minustah
Recall that it was in 2016 that the former Secretary General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon unveiled the "new strategy of the Organization to fight against cholera in Haiti" http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19030-haiti-cholera-new-un-approach.html , estimated at $400 million over a two-year period http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18970-haiti-health-un-creates-a-fund-to-fight-against-cholera-in-haiti.html
In this resolution, the General Assembly invites Member States, regional, international and bilateral donors, financial institutions, the private sector and other donors to "continue to support the new strategy to fight cholera in Haiti under the voluntary financial contributions or other appropriate forms".
The representatives of Guatemala, Chile and Canada welcomed the idea of reallocating the resources of the Minustah. Colombia spoke of "a new step in the right direction" that will better help a country "which has always shown great determination despite its difficulties" and which has also made political progress, which enabled the Minustah to be replaced soon by Minujusth.
