The Doctors of the World network has a strong operational foothold in Haiti, where every member organization has demonstrated its ability to implement a variety of timely, relevant humanitarian responses. The network’s member organizations have also been working since 2010 on a community-based and institutional response to the cholera epidemic, by doing interventions with the populations in the various departments where DOTW is present. This project as a whole aims to reduce the morbidity and mortality related to the cholera epidemic by addressing the key issues encountered to date, both institutionally and community-wise, that the national cholera elimination plan is facing.
