U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced a $2.27 billion initiative Tuesday to help eradicate cholera in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, vowing to work aggressively to secure donations for the ambitious but still mostly unfunded 10-year plan.
She noted that about 100 cases of cholera are imported to the United States each year without causing an epidemic.
She stressed that the main problem is poor sanitation and water infrastructure that helps spread the disease.
