On January 28 MSPP published, as a PDF, a document on its website saying that the general situation of cholera in Haiti is stable in January 2013. This is the first official statement I have seen in over two years of following the outbreak. I can't copy and paste it into Google Translate, so here's my attempt at a rough translation from French (please correct my errors):
MSPP reports that cholera continues to fluctuate over the whole national territory, with hot spots of activity in the departments of Artibonite, Sud, and Sud Est.
Between week 42 of 2010 and week 2 of 2013, the situation is as follows: 639,610 cumulative cases; 353,288 hospitalizations (54% of cases seen), with 7,962 deaths. Of these, 5,090 were in hospitals (hospitali case fatality rate: 1.4%).
In week 2 of 2013, MSPP has recorded 1,379 cholera cases, 905 hospitalizations, 24 deaths (20 in hospital) for an overall CFR of 1.7% and a hospital CFR of 2.2%. The daily death toll in 2010 was between 100 and 150; in 2013 the daily average has fallen to fewer than 2.
These encouraging results are thanks to the strategy adopted by the ministry. Cholera being a diarrheic illness, the ministry integrated health institutions and oral rehydration points. Thanks to these measures, cholera morbidity has fallen greatly.
In congratulating healthcare workers, the ministry is confident that the disease can be quickly eradicated if we intensify combat on all fronts to stop its spread; to make potable water available, to build latrines, and to encourage scrupulous respect for the rules of hygiene.
MSPP calls on everyone to help eradicate cholera and restore the situation before 2010.
Dr. Florence D. Guillaume, Minister
