Azure Lists GHESKIO's Cholera Treatment Center on "The 10 Best Buildings of 2015"

Azure recently listed "The 10 Best Buildings of 2015" and number 5 is GHESKIO's Cholera Treatment Center in Port-au-Prince. This exquisitely beautiful building was opened by MASS Design Group, a not-for-profit firm in Boston, and it is setting a new paradigm in solution-based design in medical center architecture. Providing care for HIV/AIDS since 1982, GHESKIO (Haitian Group for the Study of Kaposi's Sarcoma and Opportunistic Infections) was pioneered by Weill Department of Medicine faculty members, Dr. Jean W. Pape and Dr. Warren D. Johnson, Jr. The new Cholera Treatment Center opened in February of 2015 and is now fully functional. Always ahead of the curve, Dr. Pape, Director of GHESKIO, published a paper in 2014 in The New England Journal of Medicine emphasizing the need to vaccinate people against cholera.
