Project overview

Cholera last broke out in Malawi in 2016. The disease re-appeared in March 2022, primarily affecting districts around Lake Malawi. More than over 11,000 suspected cases have been reported in 29 districts since the disease broke out. At the end of October 2022, Mangochi district experienced a significant peak with a high fatality rate. MSF’s team has set up a 70-bed cholera treatment center in Mangochi district and has also implemented community activities focused on access to clean water and hygiene, as most people living in the area have no other alternative than to drink water taken from the lake. Besides this, MSF is also assisting the Ministry of Health with vaccination in Mangochi district.
