UN Responding to Cholera Outbreak

As a recent major cholera outbreak continues to take its toll on the Zimbabwe population, the United Nations is stepping up to the plate in offering aid. They have been providing the country with funds, medicines, and equipment necessary to fight the disease. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has provided enough drugs to prevent pregnancy-related complications for the next six months along with pay incentives to medics.
