Cameroon is facing its worst outbreak of cholera in a decade. Since May 2010 the Health Ministry of Cameroon has confirmed over 5,500 cases and 350 deaths due to cholera in the Nord and Extreme-Nord regions of the country. UNICEF has launched a communications campaign to spread prevention and awareness messages to over 1.6 million school children at risk in a region with limited access to latrines and clean drinking water.
