Emergency Response Fund (ERF) – Zimbabwe Annual Report 2010

Summary

The humanitarian situation in Zimbabwe remained stable though fragile in 2010 despite some improvements recorded following formation of the Government of National Unity (GNU) and adoption of multiple currencies for trading in 2009. Sectors most impacted by the humanitarian crisis included health, water and sanitation as well as food security.

The Health and WASH sectors were particularly susceptible to shocks due to prevailing degradation of infrastructure. At the close of the year, 20 out of the 62 districts in the country had reported cholera outbreaks from 4 February to 26 December 2010. This was far less than during the same period in 2009 when 54 districts had reported cholera outbreaks
