Togo: Cholera Outbreak - Nov 2013
A cholera epidemic was declared in Togo on 30 Aug 2013. The first cases were reported in a village in Lomé, from the outbreak subsequently spread to the entire Maritime and the Central regions. Six of the seven regions in the Maritime region were affected. Between August and December, 168 cases, including seven deaths, had been reported. Torrential rains, precarious sanitary conditions in the affected districts, the displacement of populations coming from Nigeria, and the start of the school year were among the main contributors to the spread of the epidemic. By the beginning of 2014, the number of new cases had decreased significantly. (IFRC, 4 Nov 2013)
