This week, Partners In Health began vaccinating 50,000 Haitians, providing them with protection against cholera that will last for up to three years.

Getting to this point wasn’t easy. Critics said a cholera vaccination wouldn’t work in Haiti.

But, at Partners In Health, we’re committed to doing whatever it takes to save lives – even if it’s not easy and even if the critics doubt us. We will work tirelessly to prevent senseless deaths.

As always, we worked with the national government to get this project off the ground. And the vaccine project is now moving forward before the worst of the rainy season – and the almost inevitable spike in cases of cholera.

With your continuing support, we’ll build a movement to use the vaccine across Haiti – and make investments in water and sanitation – to put an end to the world’s worst cholera epidemic.
