USAID Increases Assistance for Zimbabwe Cholera Outbreak

Washington, DC - The U.S. Government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), is providing an additional $600,000 to help combat the cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe.  This assistance is in addition to the $4 million water, sanitation, and hygiene emergency program USAID is already implementing in Zimbabwe.



Before cholera was widespread, USAID was working alongside the
international community to prepare for the possibility of an outbreak
in Zimbabwe.  We began building contingencies into our ongoing
emergency programs, and we are increasing our assistance to help combat
the spread of the disease, said USAID administrator Henrietta H.
Fore.  The United States is committed to helping the people of
Zimbabwe.
