Fighting Hepatitis E successfully in informal settlements in Namibia in 2019
On the 14th of December 2017, the Ministry of Health and Social Services of Namibia declared an outbreak of Hepatitis E in the country. More than 6,500 cases of Hepatitis E and 56 deaths, including 24 maternal deaths had been reported in Namibia till December 2019. The high maternal mortality is a consistent hallmark of the Hepatitis E outbreak. Hepatitis E is a liver disease caused by the Hepatitis E virus, and is transmitted via the fecal-oral route. This means people that become infected after ingesting water or food contaminated by fecal matter which contains the Hepatitis E virus. Risk factors include: limited sanitation infrastructure, and poor hygienic practices i.e lack of hand washing at critical times.
