UN Secretary-General establishes the UN Haiti Cholera Response MPTF

14 October 2016 - Today the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon established the UN Haiti Cholera Response Multi-Partner Trust Fund to finance critical priorities of the New UN System Approach on Cholera in Haiti. The trust fund provides a rapid, flexible and accountable platform to support a coordinated response from the UN system and partners.

 

The New UN System Approach on Cholera in Haiti is designed to support Haiti in overcoming the cholera epidemic and building sound water, sanitation and health systems. Urgent, early funding is required to support the implementation of the New UN Approach. In addition, the Fund will be able to support other interventions, including responding to the increased risk of cholera caused by the impact of Hurricane Mathew.

 

Member States, regional organizations, inter-governmental organizations and foundations can contribute to the fund by signing a Standard Administrative Arrangement with the MPTF Office. Individuals, companies and philanthropies can channel private contributions through the UN Foundation (see www.unfoundation.org/cholera\).
