With the resources to keep responding effectively and improvements in water and sanitation for all Haitians, "cholera will go".

That's according to David Nabarro, the UN Special Adviser responsible for the organization's on-going cholera response in Haiti.

He was speaking after the UN apologized last week for its response to the initial cholera outbreak in Haiti six years ago that claimed more than 9,000 lives.

The UN has pledged to provide both immediate and long-term support for those affected.

Doug Coffman asked Mr Nabarro if the increase in the number of UN-backed Haitian rapid response teams this year to fight cholera, had made an impact on the ground.
