Support from the UN to help Haiti finally put an end to cholera, will continue when a new UN Mission for Justice Support, known as MINUJUSTH, begins its work next week.
That’s according to the head of the UN Stabilization Mission in the country, MINUSTAH, which ends its mandate on 15 October.
Sandra Honoré told UN News in an interview, that she believed relations between the world organization and the Haitian people were “positive” and the UN would continue to support Haitian democracy and development.
Last December, then Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon apologized for the UN’s response to the 2011 cholera outbreak in Haiti which claimed more than 9,000 lives, saying it had cast “a shadow on the relationship” between the UN and the Haitian people.
Latest monthly figures show a “significant decrease” in suspected cholera cases, back to 2014 levels.
Cristina Silveiro asked Ms Honoré, what the departure of MINUSTAH meant for the people of Haiti.
