Abstract

The goal of our project is to reduce the number of Cholera cases in the Artibonite Valley in Haiti. The goal will be achieved through the implementation and education of simple water filtration methods. This results in the Haitian community learning through peer influence how to construct an effective water filtration system. In using the water filtration system, the amount of cholera cases was reduced by 85% and the awareness of the effects of the Cholera disease was greatly increased.
