In the Sud Department in Haiti, 1,320 people with cholera have received medical treatment in the cholera treatment centers and units set up by the Ministry of Health and its partners.


PAHO/WHO has sent a team of infectious disease epidemiologists to support the Ministry of Health in areas including active surveillance, quality of care in the treatment centers, and compliance with cholera treatment protocols.


Dr. Pascal Faya Moundekeno from Guinea said, "Minimizing the risk of spread of the disease and ensuring adequate care of patients is our priority."
