Cholera Disease In Haiti: A Case Study

Satisfactory Essays
Our main concern was to provide fresh and clean water for the people of Haiti. The southwest of Haiti was mainly affected by Hurricane Matthew in early October, 2016. And the problem is that all of the water there is now contaminated and is undrinkable. But the people drink it anyways, causing them to catch the Cholera disease. The Cholera disease is caused from drinking or eating something that is contaminated by a type of bacteria. However there is a cure for it, in the U.S. you would be treated by taking antibiotics and receiving IV fluids but, they don’t have money for that type of treatment in Haiti.
