The Head of the OCHA Regional Office for Southern Africa (ROSA), Mr. Ignacio Leon-Garcia, paid a brief visit to Malawi between 8 and 12 March.
As of 16 March, a total of 148 cases of cholera have been confirmed by the Ministry of Health, including two deaths.
The review of the 2015 Malawi Floods Response Plan is underway. Clusters are revising their sectorial plans, with focus on the most affected districts: Nsanje, Zomba, Phalombe, Chikwawa,
Blantyre Rural and Mulanje.
The Rapid Food Security Assessment exercise was concluded during the week beginning 2 March.
Preliminary results show that food security needs among both the food insecure populations under the concluded MVAC response will increase due to a delay by one month in the harvest time.
