Water and Sanitation Troubles in Haiti

Prior to the 2010 Port-au-Prince earthquake, access to clean water was already an issue in Haiti, long considered one of the poorest countries in the Americas. Few homes were connected to water pipes, and sanitation problems caused frequent illness. After the 7.0 earthquake hit on January 12, 2010, with weeks of aftershocks following, buildings collapsed or were severely damaged. Nearly 200,000 people died, with many more fleeing to the countryside. This further taxed and contaminated already scarce sources of clean water.
