Armed violence erupted since 12 August 2023 in the neighborhoods of Carrefour-Feuilles and Savanes Pistaches, located in the municipality of Port-au-Prince (West Department) and caused the displacement of thousands of people. Several people fled to relatives in and outside the Metropolitan Area of Port-au-Prince and others took refuge in spontaneous sites. This report presents an update on the number of people hosted in these sites as of 04 September 2023. It should be noted that the security situation remains very volatile in this area, sometimes pushing people to leave sites to seek refuge in others. In some sites where people left, cases of cholera had been reported. People potentially infected with cholera have therefore moved to other sites, increasing the risk of transmission. The follow-up of cholera cases in the sites and preventive measures are crucial at the moment.
