In the aftermath of flooding and destruction from Hurricane Matthew, Haiti faces a crisis as clean water and antibiotics are in short supply. Already, 10,000 people have died from cholera, and the World Health Organization reports that due to “contamination of the drinking water by fecal sludge [from all the flooding,] we are quite concerned about the risk of further increase of cholera cases.” The U.N. has requested $120 million to provide medical assistance to Haiti, keeping in line with Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which outlines the right to health and medical care. Without this much needed aid, the people of Haiti will continue to face a health crisis.
