OCG response to cholera in Haiti, October 2010 - March 2011
A successful intervention is described in the evaluation report; yet questions raised on the MSF role in Cholera response and how it could go beyond a mainly curative response. In Haiti OCG teams applied innovative approaches for the management of Cholera in pregnant women, for decentralised care in remote rural areas and for the treatment of excreta in treatment facilities. Social mobilisation was the key for rapid intervention and scale up. MSF had an important technical lead role in the nation-wide Cholera response.
