Sustaining Access to Clean Water in Haiti
Thank you for your interest in joining us.  Unfortunately, registration for this event is now closed.

Sustainable access to clean water is a major challenge for the Haitian population. According to USAID Haiti, only 58% of Haitians have access to an improved water source and only 28% of Haitians have access to improved sanitation. The 2010 cholera epidemic have caused nearly 10,000 deaths. In October 2016, following Hurricane Matthew, the number of suspected cholera cases rose to about 40,000. The lack of access to potable water and improved sanitation services have led to high levels of diarrhea and other infections among the population.


The panel discussion will focus on the response to the cholera epidemic and ongoing Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) projects in Haiti. The panel will feature representatives from Non-Profit Organizations (NGOs) involved in clean water projects in Haiti.
