The objective of the project is to contribute to the elimination of cholera in Chad through improving case management of cholera through the availability of essential drugs, medical equipment, training/retraining of medical personnel, support deployment of additional medical staff; reducing the transmission by improving sanitation and access to safe drinking water in cholera treatment centers and community level; reducing transmission through improved awareness to change behavior of the population at risk; and improving the supervision, monitoring and evaluation.
To this end, the project will have the following components:
Component 1: Acquisition of Drugs, Consumables and Equipment Component 2: Technical Assistance and Logistics Component 3: Strengthening the System of Epidemiological Monitoring
The total budget for this project is approximately US$917,944 to be funded by the African Development Bank (AFDB). The World Health Organization Regional Office for Africa will be the implementing agency for this project.
