Current Events: Updates on Haiti

Here’s a link to the most recent update on the cholera outbreak in Haiti, which details the weakening outbreak but notes the high mortality rates in rural areas. One proposed solution involves the use of oral rehydration packets as suggested in this article. However, cholera is just a part of a larger set of problems that Haiti faces. This editorial, written last month and a year after the devastating earthquake, outlines some of these problems. It will be interesting to see how the recovery and rebuilding process continues.
