What’s being done about the cholera epidemic in Haiti?

    Cholera is spread through unclean water, so preventing its spread is as simple as ensuring sanitary water and conditions. A non-governmental organization called Gift of Water provides water filtration systems to vulnerable areas through the work of volunteers. Gift of Water has been doing work in Haiti for 15 years, but due to the outbreak some of the volunteers set to help are postponing or cancelling their trip.

    The main thing that is being done about this epidemic is that individuals are trying to keep away from tainted water. As well, infected patients are being treated with a “simple mixture of salt and sugar water to replace lost fluids” – apparently this generally leads to positive results. The United Nations recently made an appeal for $163 million. They are trying to provide as much assistance as possible, including physicians, medicines and equipment to sanitize the water.
