World Must ‘Get Serious About Tackling’ Water, Sanitation
New York Times: Cholera and Clean Water
Lisa Schectman, director of policy and advocacy at WaterAid
“Drawing attention to the continuing catastrophe of cholera in Haiti is critical to bringing an end to the preventable suffering and death that stem from the true root cause: poor access to safe drinking water, sanitation and healthy hygiene practices like hand washing. … What is happening in Haiti is a very real crisis. Yet it need never be repeated if we get serious about tackling the lack of access to safe water and toilets worldwide” (4/27).
