Health Project: Haiti: Enfomasyon Nou Dwe Konnen (News You Can Use): Cholera in Haiti
A hurricane swept through Haiti and in its wake came cholera. Internews responded with information about where people can access clinics, what symptoms indicate illnesses like cholera, malaria, and typhoid, and what people can do to prevent illness. Extensive research in Haiti shows people want health-related information. Public information and effective community outreach identified by World Health Organization (WHO) as the single most effective way of tackling cholera.
