M. Nyamazana, G. Koyi, P. Funjika and E. Chibwili, Eds.: UNHCR; Institute of Economic and Social Research (INESOR), University of Zambia; Refugee Studies Centre, UK, (2017)


The study on refugee economies shows that refugees and former refugees are contributing positively to Zambia’s economy in various ways and have the potential to contribute even further if legal and other obstacles are removed. The study targeted mainly Congolese, Burundian, Somali, and Rwandan refugees as well as former refugees from Rwanda and Angola in urban areas and the two rural refugee settlements, Mayukwayukwa (Kaoma District/Western Province) and Meheba (Kaulumbila District/North-Western Province).

Single-Dose Cholera Vaccine in Response to an Outbreak in Zambia

Ferreras, E.; , (2018)


N Engl J Med 2018; 378:577-579; DOI: 10.1056/NEJMc1711583 A dose of oral vaccine provides effective short-term protection against cholera during an outbreak, a study in Zambia shows. According to researchers, a shortage in the global stockpile of cholera vaccines meant that single-dose oral vaccination was necessary to tackle an outbreak in Lusaka, Zambia, in February 2016. The emergency vaccination campaign was implemented in April 2016, targeting more than 500,000 people in Lusaka’s overcrowded township areas. The 2016 outbreak happened when Zambia had not reported a case of cholera in four years. To determine the effectiveness of the single-dose cholera vaccine, the researchers enrolled 66 patients with confirmed cholera and 330 people without the disease who were neighbours of the patients. According to the study the effectiveness of the single dose vaccination was about 90 per cent.
