Africhol Consortium Meets in Mozambique

Consortium Africhol, Mozambique

November 3, 2011

Members of the Africhol consortium came together in Maputo, Mozambique on October 10-11.

During the two-day consortium meeting, members representing ministries of health presented results from both Africhol and other cholera-related programs. Participants from organizations meanwhile talked about cholera in other regions and countries and provided updates on their latest research findings.

AMP established the Africhol project in 2009 with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The project aims to determine the incidence of cholera in sub-Saharan African through the creation of a surveillance network in at least eight countries. Data gathered from the project will serve to help national and international decision-makers to determine the best strategies to control cholera in these countries.
