In this June 30, 2011 photo, a nurse pours water on the top of a girl's head who is suffering cholera symptoms at the treatment center in Mirebalais, a dusty crossroads town a one-hour drive north of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The center is again seeing dozens of new patients a day, many arriving at the edge of death from dehydration. Cholera has sickened at least 370,000 people and killed more than 5,500 since the outbreak started in October, according to the Health Ministry. The disease is relatively easy to treat if people can get help in time. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)
