Home » General » Written question – VP/HR – Cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe – E-005030/2018

Zimbabwe is currently suffering from an extreme outbreak of Cholera due to poorly managed water and sewage systems. The EU has provided over USD 1 billion in assistance. One of the aims of this package was to provide clean water for all; yet a Cholera outbreak still occurred and is proving difficult to eliminate.

What can the VP/HR do to ensure that funds are being channelled to where they need to be? How can the EU provide more aid to the people affected in their time of need?
