Zimbabwe: coping with the cholera outbreak

26-11-2008 Feature

The ICRC-supported Budiriro Polyclinic in one of Harare's densely-populated suburbs is a hive of activity. The entrance is crowded with people, some lined up at the gate waiting their turn to enter. In recent weeks, Budiriro has been converted into a “Cholera Treatment Unit” to help deal with the epidemic.
