Hendriksen et al today published their findings on whether the ongoing cholera disaster in Haiti was sourced from Nepal (i.e. Nepalese UN troops). AAAS' Science magazine just published a brief contextual discussion of how scientific concern had been brewing for some time.
Here we highlight, it was the HEAS members who first publicly alerted the world to the possibility of Nepalese UN troop involvement in the origins of the cholera disaster on October 26, 2010.
The HEAS was conceived and facilitated by the same operational team that provided warning of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic to CDC and WHO, a discussion of which may be found here (see 4:25 and 10:24).
