PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI - NOVEMBER 17: Members of a Haitian Ministry of Health body-collection team take the body of Lucienne Louis, 48, from her home to a vehicle where they pile her body onto other victims of the cholera epidemic to dispose of them on November 17, 2010 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The bodies had been collected from homes, the street and a hospital as Haiti's cholera epidemic has killed more than 1,000 and sickened thousands. Unable to find other sites to dispose of the bodies they ended up at Titanyen the site of the mass grave for victims of the earthquake in January, where, after negotiating with the local mayor, they were able to dump the bodies in anticipation of them being buried. Doctors say poor sanitary conditions after January's earthquake made the country vulnerable to cholera, which is caused by bacteria transmitted through contaminated water or food.
