News : Suspected cholera cases continue to rise in Haiti. While the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN are concerned about an epidemic outbreak in Haiti in an increasingly degraded security context.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), to support the action of the health authorities, has already opened four Cholera Treatment Centers (CTC) in Port-au-Prince and its surroundings, i.e. a capacity of 205 beds: in the Turgeau district, in Cité Soleil, Champ de Mars, Raoul-Pierre-Louis Hospital (Carrefour).

"We have water purification activities mainly in Carrefour. And we are also strengthening awareness of barrier measures in the most affected neighborhoods such as Brooklyn, Cité Soleil, Carrefour-Feuilles, Bel-Air and Delmas 24," explained Auguste Victor Ngantse le, Medical Coordinator for MSF - Haiti, adding "We don't know exactly what caused the resurgence of cholera in the country, on the other hand, in the slums like the Cité Soleil where we started to identify the first cases, there were very favorable elements such as insalubrity, promiscuity or difficult access to drinking water. »
