This project complements efforts of the Government of the Republic of Zimbabwe and other Partners to urgently intensify the implementation of the cholera response plan to contain and combat the disease by consolidating the achievements of the previous year. Given the heavy toll of the cholera outbreak last year, the project is important in order to react urgently to the current signs of a cholera outbreak before it takes greater dimension. Support will therefore be directed to further implement the cholera response plan for Zimbabwe through the following activities; (i) Procurement and distribution of water disinfectant tablets, cholera personal protection equipment and materials, medical supplies (cholera kits, IV fluids, ORS, giving sets, chlorine, drugs, etc), fuel to support transport logistics, disinfectants and detergents for use at CTCs, water purification tablets and field water quality monitoring kits and reagents and support to government’s analyst laboratories. (ii) Capacity building among health workers and communities through focused trainings to health workers and community volunteers and provision of IEC materials and community education for improved hygiene and sanitation. The total cost of the above mentioned activities is estimated at US$1,000,000.00 including management fees of the executing agency.
The general objective is to consolidate the achievements of the past and strengthen the national cholera preparedness to contain the emerging outbreak as an intermediate measure whilst long term measures are implemented.
The main beneficiaries are Population in the 9 districts affected by cholera namely Bindura, Chegutu, Chipinge, Gokwe North, Gokwe South, Harare, Kadoma, Makonde and Rushinga.
