Challenge

A cholera epidemic is currently hitting the Mogode, Kousseri, Makary and Mada health districts of Far North Region of Cameroon. This is happening barely a few months after the last cholera epidemic occurred (October 2009), still in Far North Region of Cameroon. So far, 3300 cases of cholera and 360 deaths have already been registered. LWDG-Cameroon with the local NGO partners are planning to take preventive measures, with special focus on sensitization,treatment & construction

Solution

To help stop the spread of the epidemics is by conducting Social mobilization, including sensitization of populations, individual and collective hygiene promotion, and water disinfection as a contribution to the eradication of the epidemic.

Long-Term Impact

Once local people are educated, sensitized and understands the meaning of hygiene and sanitation, they will extend the experience to the younger generations and will implement this in secondary and primary and nursery schools,groups,associations NGOs
