Haiti - Health : Eliminating cholera in Haiti a matter of money

The recent successes in the fight against cholera in Haiti show that when the United Nations and the Haitian authorities receive the required funds, real progress can be made and in the long term "cholera will disappear", a senior United Nations official said.



In an interview with the United Nations Information Service, Dr. David Nabarro, UN Special Adviser, took as an example the recent immunization campaign supported by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), a regional branch of The World Health Organization (WHO), which enabled the vaccination of 729,000 vulnerable Haitians https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19365-haiti-cholera-more-than-729-000-people-vaccinated.html and the increase in rapid response teams, which have had a positive impact in curbing outbreaks.



Although the vaccine is not 100% effective [± 60%], combined with other interventions, such as chlorination of water supplies and intensive population education, the impact on cholera can be important, said Dr. David Nabarro, adding that the UN seeks to vaccinate everyone in Haiti, ideally with two doses.



"We need enough money to be able to have that capability until 2018 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-18970-haiti-health-un-creates-a-fund-to-fight-against-cholera-in-haiti.html . We can then truly reduce this epidemic and arrive at really small numbers. If we combine this with efforts to improve water supply and sanitation for each Haitian, the cholera will disappear."
