Zambia is set to receive 1.6 million doses of cholera vaccines on Monday as the country suffers one of its worst outbreaks.
More than 350 deaths and 9,000 infections have been recorded since the outbreak started October last year.
The vaccines have been secured by Zambia’s government in collaboration with the World Health Organization and UN’s children agency, UNICEF.
The vaccines will be officially received by the health ministry after arriving to the country late on Sunday.
The outbreak has so far spread to nine out of Zambia’s 10 provinces.
