Cholera Outbreak

via PIH
Now, after the devastating January earthquake, Haiti is facing another disaster.  An outbreak of cholera has been documented in Saint Marc in central Haiti.  Though there are no tent cities from the earthquake in Saint Marc, many fear that the disease will spread to Port-au-Prince and infect the thousands of homeless and impoverished living there.  Read Partners in Health’s article on the outbreak about how cholera is a disease of poverty… and do something to help.
