Description: Caption:
This 2016 image entitled, Charting the Path to Safe Water in Artibonite, Haiti, depicted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Haiti, Jean Allain Darius (LT), working with a United Nation’s International Organization for Migration (IOM) colleague, charting paths to communities that are difficult to reach by road. Artibonite, one of the departments hardest hit by an ongoing cholera outbreak, had an estimated population of 1.5 million, of which more than one million were living in rural communities. The Haitian government, the UN’s IOM, and the CDC Emergency Response and Recovery Branch, worked together in 2016, conducting water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) assessments in Artibonite. Access to safe water and sanitation, were estimated to determine needs, and provide recommendations for the best course of action for reducing cholera transmission with the ultimate aim of ending the years-long cholera outbreak, and saving lives.
