UNDENY IS AN INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN
BY RYOT TO FIGHT THE CHOLERA EPIDEMIC IN HAITI
What is Cholera?Cholera is a waterborne illness that causes acute, profuse diarrhea and vomiting. Cholera disproportionately impacts the poor and vulnerable; it is generally easily treatable with oral rehydration solutions, but for those who lack access to clean water and medical care, it can kill in a matter of hours.
How did the epidemic spread through Haiti?On October 21, 2010 cholera exploded in the Artibonite region along Haiti’s central river system, and then quickly spread to other areas. Within the first 30 days, Haitian authorities recorded almost 2,000 deaths from cholera. While cholera is endemic in some developing countries, Haiti has never had a recorded cholera epidemic. As of May 2012, the Haitian government reports that 7,200 people have died and over 542,000 have been infected with the disease. Geneticists and epidemiologists have verified that the bacteria originated from a riverside UN peacekeeping base in Mirebalais.
