During this mission, the Health Decentralization Support Unit (UADS) carried out, among other things, the orientation of the Mobile Rapid Intervention Teams (EMIRA) on their roles and responsibilities as well as on the implementation of sanitary cordons.

This mission also made it possible to:

  • Evaluate the quality of nursing care provided at the level of Acute Diarrhea Treatment Centers (CTDA), Cholera Treatment Centers (CTC) and referral and counter-referral community hospitals;
  • Equip EMIRAs with supervision and evaluation techniques for treatment centers for acute diarrhea and progression to cholera in communities.
