“Diarrhoea makes you sick. Wash hands often – before you cook and eat, and after using the toilet. This is the best way to stop sickness”
Ministry of Health and WHO are working together to communicate critical public health advice via mobile phone text messages.
This innovative use of technology targets people living in rural areas, who have greater access to mobile phones than to television, radio and newspapers.
In Vanuatu, more than 160,000 people across 22 islands are affected by Cyclone #Pam
