Cholera disease continues to affect six out of ten regions of Cameroon. As of 16 May, the Ministry of Public Health reported 7,045 cholera cases and 135 related deaths. The South-West region, already affected by insecurity and violence, is the most affected by cholera, with 4,980 cases and 81 deaths as of 8 May. Aid organizations continue to provide water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), logistics, and case management support in regions with cholera, where they are also conducting vaccination and awareness-raising campaigns. The UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) released US$ 1.7 million to support scale-up aid interventions to reduce cholerarelated mortality and curb the spread of the disease. However, access to remote areas remains of concern as violence, the lockdown imposed by non-state armed groups, and poor road conditions continue to hamper the provision of humanitarian aid.
