STORYLINE
United Nations Spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric told journalists in New York there are now 32 confirmed cholera cases in Haiti, as well as 224 suspected cases, and 16 confirmed deaths from the disease.

Dujarric said “the UN and humanitarian partners are supporting the Ministry of Health on the cholera response” and noted that more than 43 health facilities around Port-au-Prince and the Centre region have been identified and will be used to treat cholera patients. Twelve health facilities are currently receiving patients for treatment.

The spokesperson said, “cases of cholera have been identified in the National prison in Port-au-Prince,” with two confirmed cases, nine deaths and 39 suspected cases of cholera reported by national authorities, which “are investigating the situation to identify the source, and they have been mounting an urgent response.”

Dujarric “urgently” appealed for funds from the international community “to address the cholera outbreak as well as other pressing humanitarian needs in the country” and stressed that “the ability to address the humanitarian need better is linked to the security situation.”

He told journalists that Secretary-General António Guterres has submitted a letter to the Security Council “with options for enhanced security support to Haiti, as requested by the Council in its resolution 2645.”

The current Humanitarian Response Plan for Haiti for 2022 remains underfunded, at just under 20 percent currently.
