|Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Intervention for Eliminating Cholera on Hispaniola|
What: October 19, 2012, will mark the two-year anniversary of the cholera outbreak on the island of Hispaniola. Over the past two years a range of multilateral organizations, government agencies, and non-governmental program implementers, have been working to assist the Governments of Haiti and the Dominican Republic in controlling the spread of cholera – emphasizing the importance of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions. To acknowledge the island’s two-year effort to control the spread of cholera and to advance action in support of the Regional Coalition on Water and Sanitation for the Elimination of Cholera in the Island of Hispaniola, the Center for Strategic International Studies (CSIS) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) will convene two expert-led panel discussions that will focus on the challenges posed by the outbreak, describe the opportunities presented by regional collaboration on WASH activities, and identify opportunities for greater engagement on cholera elimination by the non-government sector.

Where: Center for Strategic and International Studies, 1800 K Street NW, Washington, DC, B1 Conference Room
