When millions of Haitians head to the polls to vote in this Sunday 28 November election, they will also be handed bars of soap and will have access to information on cholera prevention.

Haiti's Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) asked the United Nations to help purchase bars of soap to be distributed at the polling stations. In a joint effort, in two days UNDP helped purchase over 2 million bars of soap, and Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) produced 24,000 posters on cholera prevention to be placed by the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) at polling stations throughout the country.
