Haiti - Humanitarian : The UN and its partners launch a
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA - Haiti) and its partners, together with the Ministry of Planning and External Cooperation have launched a flash appeal for $145.6 million to provide support to Haiti in the emergency response to the new wave of cholera and provide vital aid to 1.4 million people living in the most affected areas.

"Cholera is a preventable and treatable disease, and based on their experience and expertise, national institutions quickly put together a response strategy with the determined support of the entire local and international humanitarian community," said UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, Ulrika Richardson adding that “however, the surge in cases in recent weeks and the rapid spread of cholera in the country is worrying." According to PAHO/WHO, 500,000 people are at risk of contracting the disease https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-38142-haiti-cholera-daily-bulletin-38.html

The cholera crisis has hit already vulnerable populations hardest. The latest food security analysis for Haiti shows that 4.7 million people, nearly half the population https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37997-haiti-crisis-more-than-18-of-the-population-at-risk-of-very-high-malnutrition.html , are experiencing high levels of food insecurity, with 19,200 people in a disaster situation (IPC#5) https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37889-haiti-health-for-the-first-time-famine-is-in-haiti.html

The main roads linking the capital to the rest of the country are under the control or influence of gangs, which has limited or even deprived the population's access to basic services for many months...

The UN and partners are calling for funding to support national authorities in their efforts to contain the spread of cholera through the provision of clean water, hygiene and sanitation, and health activities, while addressing urgent food security, nutrition, and protection needs in the most affected

The entire humanitarian community stands alongside national institutions to overcome the challenges of Haiti's complex crises.

UNICEF needs to mobilize 27.1 million in this flash appeal to fight against cholera in an integrated approach (health, water, hygiene and sanitation, nutrition and protection).
