Responding to the Cholera outbreak in Malawi
Saving lives from a preventable disease
Malawi is experiencing its worst cholera outbreak in recorded history while also struggling to respond to Polio and COVID-19. Resources are limited, the health system is overburdened, and workers are stretched to their limits.
The disease has spread to all 29 districts of Malawi, and as of 24 July 2023, 58,944 cases and 1,766 deaths have been registered. Over 14,000 children have contracted cholera, and over 219 have died.
