After the cholera outbreak was confirmed, the Ministry of Health asked Project Medishare for assistance particularly with providing tents and important medical supplies such as IVs, IV starting kits and cots. One tent, which was previously used as an operating room at the Project Medishare field hospital, was set up yesterday in Mirebalais by Miami Event Star crews.

Event Star crew member explains what else will be needed to complete the tent with Project Medishare’s Country Director Marie Chery and Zanmi Lasante’s Dr. David Walton.

Today both organizations are working together to see that wooden floors are secured in the tent and that cots are in place so that patients can be transferred as soon as possible.

 

PIH’s Dr. David Walker said cholera patients currently receiving care at the hospital in Mirebalais and the clinic in Las Cahobas should begin being transferred to the cholera treatment center by tomorrow at the latest.

 

A Ministry of Health community nurse is in charge of arranging the staffing needs at the cholera treatment center. Project Medishare staff and volunteers are standing by should the need arise.
