UNICEF/Responding to Critical Water Needs for People | 2015–2017
In early 2016, Haiti was suffering from a three-year El Niño– induced drought, along with related food insecurity and malnutrition, and infant morbidity and mortality. In May 2016, heavy rains brought an increase in cholera cases.
USAID is responding to critical water needs for people at risk of drought-induced hunger—as well as waterborne illness—by providing emergency water for drinking, hygiene, and sanitation, especially in the areas hardest hit by drought.
This project profile appears in the USAID Global Water and Development Report.
