Archaie, Haiti – October 2010
A man infected with cholera being treated at a local hospital in the village of Archaie, Haiti.
On Tuesday, the Haitian government announced that the death toll from the cholera outbreak that began last month had surpassed 1,000. MSF teams saw cases increasing across the country with particular spikes in the capital, Port-au-Prince, and the northern cities of Cap Haitien, Port de Paix, and Gros Morne.
The fundamental paradox remains in place: an easily treatable and preventable disease continues to claim lives.
