Cases, Deaths Of Cholera In Haiti Falling, But More Should Be Done
New York Times: Fighting Cholera in Haiti
Jon Andrus and John Oldfield of the Coalition to Eliminate Cholera from Hispaniola
In response to an earlier New York Times editorial about the cholera epidemic in Haiti, Andrus and Oldfield discuss ending the epidemic, noting “[c]ases and deaths are falling. But you [the New York Times editorial board] are right: Haiti still needs our help. A full realization of the 10-year national plan would eliminate cholera from Haiti and reduce other waterborne diseases there. … We appeal to our coalition members and other donors to provide the resources that are needed to save lives in Haiti” (4/30).
