NPR: Cholera Vaccination Test Reached Targets in Haiti

By Richard Knox in NPR

The results are in on this spring's high-visibility pilot project to vaccinate 100,000 Haitians against cholera. Almost 90 percent of the target population—half in Port-au-Prince and the other half in a remote rural area—got fully protected against cholera, meaning they got 2 doses of the oral vaccine.The sponsors of the project—the nonprofit medical groups GHESKIO in Port-au-Prince and Partners In Health in rural Haiti—presented the results on Monday.
