Cholera Outbreak in Haiti { 66 images } Created 1 Nov 2010

An outbreak of cholera in the Artibonite River valley, in the center of Haiti, killed more than a thousand people and sickened tens of thousands in late 2010. A quick response from Haitian and international medical organizations has so far helped stem the spread. Still, many people live in circumstances that do not afford them the luxury of avoiding activities that bring them into contact with contaminated water sources. Though cholera had not been seen in Haiti for 50 years prior, it appears likely to pose a threat for the foreseeable future.
