Context Haiti is in the midst of a cholera epidemic. Surveillance data to inform public health decision making are limited. Contribution The authors constructed a mathematical model of epidemic dynamics that is based on both population and distance. The model's results closely match the contour of the epidemic to date. The model was used to project the probable effect of different approaches to allocation of vaccines and clean water on the course of the epidemic. Caution The model does not… CONTINUE READING
