Oxfam GB implemented an integrated public health programme in Monrovia funded by ECHO and targeting cholera ‘hot spot’ communities in: urban slums (West Point and Clara Town); IDP camps (Soul Clinic and Mount Barclay); and host communities near the IDP camps. The programme ran from 2003 to 2007. A mid-term evaluation has been carried out by two advisers from the Humanitarian department using a participatory approach, which involved the national team. The review has assessed the effectiveness of ECHO’s proposal, which stated: Targeted communities in two districts and two IDP camps in urban Monrovia have access and availability of water and sanitation facilities and are able to take action to protect themselves against protection and public health risks.
