With concern rising that the disease could spread further, UNICEF — alongside the World Health Organization (WHO) — indicates that it has provided support to the Iraqi Ministry of Health, delivered and secured clean water supplies, offered treatment for people with cholera symptoms, and undertaken a national communication campaign to help people protect themselves against the disease…” (11/6).
