#### Conclusion:

Cholera is a very preventable disease, as long as living conditions are sanitary. The disease can also be controlled with anti-biotics, however both of these factors are extremely hard for third world countries such as Haiti. Even though the breakout was in a third-world country, it should not be ignored because there is a possibility that it could travel overseas. Therefore, if people are more knowledgable on the conditions of the disease, it can easily be avoided.
