Haiti's two most prominent health care groups are preparing a new assault on the country's deadly cholera epidemic: the dispatch of hundreds of workers to remote villages and gritty alleys in the capital to administer a vaccine against the raging disease.
Haiti's two most prominent health care organizations are preparing a new assault on the country's deadly cholera epidemic: the dispatch of hundreds of workers to remote villages and gritty alleys in the capital to administer a vaccine against the raging disease.
Haiti has the highest rate of cholera in the world a mere year after the disease first arrived in the Caribbean nation, a leading health expert said Tuesday.
"It's been a joke to focus on how much it costs," Dr. Farmer said by telephone. "The Haitian cholera epidemic is the largest in the world."
Farmer acknowledges the global shortage but believes the epidemic will spur pharmaceutical companies to increase supply.
