Abstract

There is a pressing need to reduce cholera cases following future earthquakes in Haiti. By managing the post-earthquake protocol for the purification and distribution process to Quartier Silo, an area in Port-au-Prince, we plan to prevent the spread of cholera which is commonly transmitted through unsanitary water. We plan to compare the number of cholera cases in the area of Quartier Silo before and after implementation to measure the effectiveness of our approach. If the number of cholera cases is reduced, this proves the plan to be a success which can be used as an ideal model.
