Since 2010, the cholera epidemic in Haiti has directly affected 805,000 people and taken the lives of more than 9,480 [official figures as of 11 March 2017]. The UN-backed national and international efforts have led to a 90 per cent reduction in the number of suspected cases of cholera compared with the peak of the epidemic in 2011.
