Haiti, DR create $2.2 billion plan to stem cholera
Question of the Day
PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI (AP) - International health groups are joining with the governments of Haiti and the Dominican Republic to eradicate cholera, and they say the project requires $2.2 billion over the next 10 years.
The effort will be led by the governments of the two countries. The Pan-American Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and UNICEF will help execute the project.
The project would be the biggest endeavor ever to develop Haiti’s barely existent water and sanitation system.
The tattered state of the country’s infrastructure has contributed to the spread of cholera, which surfaced in October 2010. It has killed more than 7,600 people in Haiti and more than 420 people in the Dominican Republic.
