IRIN Examines U.N.’s Recent Efforts To Provide $400M Cholera Package In Haiti, Effects Of Epidemic On SG Ban’s Legacy

IRIN: Ban Ki-moon’s U.N. legacy clouded by cholera
“Nearly a month after U.N. officials announced the idea of a special $400 million package to deal with cholera in Haiti, almost no donors have agreed to fund assistance for its victims. … The idea of a package of ‘material assistance’ for victims and survivors was floated by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon after the publication of a searing report on the crisis by a human rights adviser. … Ban is losing time to make amends before he leaves the job at the end of the year…” (Oakford, 11/18).
