dc.description.abstractAfter more than three years without cases, Haiti reported on 2 October 2022 a cluster of cholera cases in the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince. This cholera resurgence in Haiti is happening in a complex operational context, amid a volatile socio-political environment marked by blockades, fuel shortages, criminal gang activity and rampant insecurity. This Appeal focuses on addressing the immediate needs of the Haitian population in areas affected by the resurgence of cholera as well as protect the most vulnerable groups at risk of infection. This appeal seeks to support, expand and strengthen Government and partners’ health response efforts to manage and control cholera outbreaks to reduce mortality and morbidity, and limit its spread to other communities and departments. Immediate response efforts will target: The scaling-up of response capacities of the MSPP and health partners already operational on the ground to increase capacities for surveillance, care delivery, risk communication, etc.; the rapid reactivation of response structures and mechanisms established for the response to and elimination of the previous cholera outbreak (2012-2019); and the strengthening of preparedness and response capacities in other departments, in preparation for a potential geographical dissemination of the virus. Recognizing the risk of spread of the outbreak outside of Haiti, particularly to neighboring Dominican Republic that shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti, these efforts will also support countries at risk of importation of cases.en_US
