According to Cameroon’s Minister of Public Health Andre Mama Fouda, poor sanitation and limited access to good drinking water are the main causes of recurrent outbreak in the Far North.
A majority of those infected with the disease are children under the age of five and women.”
Cholera in this region is also aggravated by the poor hygienic practices that are deeply rooted in people’s culture, says Félicité Tchibindat, the country representative for the United Nations Children’s Fund Cameroon.
“Water is scarce and considered as a very precious commodity, but handling it is quite unhygienic”. (END//2014)
