Emergency Preparedness & Response

Integrated within all programs, J/P HRO promotes emergency preparedness and maintains capacity to respond to the emergencies that are tragically part of the cycle of life in Haiti. During the height of the cholera epidemic, J/P HRO delivered more than 100 metric tons of cholera treatment supplies throughout Haiti and led grass-roots prevention campaigns across the mountaintops of Haiti’s West Department. As a result, J/P HRO has developed a reputation in Haiti as the “9-1-1 service” for cholera treatment centers around the country.
