Malawi has run out of stocks of cholera vaccines. The country has administered nearly 2 million 900,000 doses since the outbreak of this epidemic in March 2022.

While hoping to receive new vaccines from the World Health Organization as soon as possible, the health authorities are calling on the population to be more vigilant and respect hygiene rules. These protective measures will prevent any spread of the disease. A very deadly disease that has claimed the lives of more than 880 people in almost a year according to the latest statistics from the Ministry of Health.

To date, the 27 districts of the country are affected and the authorities promise to do everything possible to respond to the urgency of the situation by providing vaccines to the populations as quickly as possible.

In addition, on January 13, UNICEF promised to provide equipment and medicines to support Malawi in this fight against the cholera epidemic.
