New Cholera Ward Photos

Several months after Haiti's earthquake, a cholera epidemic broke out nationwide.  St. Joseph Clinic was inundated with cholera patients.  Medicin sans Frontiere (MSF) - Doctors Without Borders aided St. Joseph Clinic by constructing a new cholera treatment center early in the summer of 2011. In addition to building new facilities, MSF also helped establish better protocols, and train staff and community workers in cholera treatment and prevention.
