Haitian and UN officials say a suspected cholera outbreak has killed at least 135 people in Haiti.
More than 1,500 people have fallen ill in the affected area north of the capital, Port-au-Prince.
The World Health Organization (WHO) said it was sending specialists to the country.
Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake in January that claimed more than 220,000 lives and left 1.5 million homeless.
Cholera is a waterborne bacterial infection spread through contaminated water, which causes diarrhea and vomiting and can lead to dehydration and death.
