In Debate, U.N. Secretary General Candidates Discuss Whether Organization Should Take Responsibility For Haitian Cholera Epidemic
Humanosphere: A lone hand raised on the question of U.N. responsibility for cholera in Haiti
Humanosphere reporter Tom Murphy discusses the first-ever televised debate of U.N. secretary general candidates, during which candidates were asked whether the U.N. should apologize for the Haiti cholera epidemic. Murphy notes that only one candidate, Costa Rican diplomat Christina Figueres, said that the U.N. should take responsibility for the 2010 outbreak, which was allegedly started by unsanitary conditions at a U.N. peacekeeping camp (7/14).
