On November 24, Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres – MSF) reported it continues increasing its efforts in response to Haiti’s deepening crisis.

From October 22 to November 21, MSF teams treated 29,000 people in cholera treatment centers (CTCs), established in Port-au-Prince, Artibonite region (where the first outbreak occurred), North, and Northwest with a 2% or less case fatality rate.

A remarkable record showing that cholera is easily treated when done effectively in time. Otherwise, it’s fatal, a major problem for growing numbers unable to access care, including because of heavy rain in some areas turning roads to mud.
