Decolonizing Aid for Health Justice: Water, Cholera, and Rice in Haiti

Vicky Koski-Karell discusses three elements of Haiti's contemporary history—water, cholera, and rice—and traces the ways that their interrelated narratives impinge on one another. Humanitarian efforts to ameliorate water, health, and food insecurity in Haiti often rely on top-down strategies—themselves constrained by funding mechanisms, internal mission and bureaucracy, and implicit bias—that, while sometimes effecting improvements, may perpetuate colonial dynamics.
