DRC | Fighting against cholera

A cholera epidemic broke out at the beginning of the year in the province of Tshopo (DRC) and spread down along the river Congo, the country's main transport connection. With the MSF emergency team of the Pool d'Urgence Congo (PUC), MSF first intervened on early March in Basoko, northwest of Kisangani, setting up a Cholera Treatment Center (CTC) with 30 beds, two Cholera Treatment Units and several rehydration points. In total, nearly 1,000 patients were supported in over two months.
