“On October 1, 2022, the Haitian Ministry of Health reported a resurgence of cholera in Port-au-Prince. This comes a decade after Haiti had one of the worst cholera epidemics in modern history in 2010, with more than 800,000 cases and 10,000 deaths. That epidemic was brought under control through a comprehensive response that included cholera treatment; improvements in drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene; case investigation; decontamination of water sources; and oral cholera vaccination of 2.5 million people. The resurgence of cholera coincides with recent political chaos, gang violence, and a blockade of the main port in Port-au-Prince that have led to a catastrophic shortage of food, potable water, and fuel.”
