iciHaiti - Health : 50% of Haitian children suffer from waterborne diseases
As part of World Water Day, commemorated this Tuesday, March 22, Jean Métanier the Interim Representative of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) in Haiti, revealed that nearly 50% of children suffer of waterborne diseases due to poor water quality underlining the importance of investing in water supply and promote better health conditions for the population recalling that UNICEF-Haiti provides economic assistance between 10 to 15 million US dollars per year in the fight against cholera and support for access to water.

Recall that in 2015, according to the Survey of mortality, morbidity and service utilization (EMMUS V), Haiti had a water coverage rate estimated at 54% and only 49% of the rural population had access to a safe drinking water.
