The Mogodé locality in the Mayo-Tsanaga division, has just served as the framework for the launch of the vaccination campaign against cholera.

According to Dr. Grace Alake, deputy director of vaccination in the Family Health Directorate of the Ministry of Health, who came to the field for this event, it was because during the 2010 cholera epidemic, the literality rate, that is to say people who died as a result of cholera there was very high that the city of Mogodé was chosen for the launch of this campaign, reports Cameroon Tribune in kiosk this Friday.

This vaccination campaign against cholera spread from May 25 to 31, 2017, it is learned. It is also remembered that it was by Mogodé that the first cases of cholera were reported during the epidemic, which had resulted in hundreds of deaths in the Far North.

The administrative authorities and health officials in this region took the opportunity of this campaign to raise awareness about the improvement of their living environments.

In addition to the campaign to bring doses of cholera vaccine to thousands of residents, the focus has been on raising awareness about the practice of body hygiene, the report said.

A motorized caravan has traveled Mogodé and has done remarkable work in this field. Now that the first rains are falling in the Far North region, it seems necessary that the populations put into practice the advice given to them in the framework of the crusade against cholera.
