Cholera Quotations

The biggest public health challenge is rebuilding health systems. In other words, if you look at cholera or maternal mortality or tuberculosis in Haiti, they're major problems in Haiti, but the biggest problem is rebuilding systems.

This was a big rebuke to all of us working in public health and health care in Haiti.
Paul Farmer

Gabriel Garcia Marquez
