Finally UN Admits – Sort of — To Role in Haiti Cholera Epidemic

DRcoverI was thrilled to have edited Ralph Frerichs book Deadly River on cover up of the Haitian Cholera epidemic, which was published by our series on The Culture and Politics of Health Care work at Cornell University Press. Deadly River is a great medical detective story with French epidemiologist Renaud Piarroux as the book’s hero — the diligent scientist who traced the epidemic’s origins to UN Peacekeepers from Nepal.  Finally, the UN is beginning to fess up and Ralph has written a great OpEd for the Boston Globe about what the UN has to do next.  Please check it out. Also please check out Ralph Frerichs website.
