This Emergency Appeal seeks a total of some 5.5 million Swiss francs to enable the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support the Malagasy Red Cross Society (MRCS) to deliver assistance and support to some two million people over 18 months, to contribute to the reduction in mortality and morbidity due to the plague outbreak in 22 priority regions through effective prevention and response activates. The focus of the appeal is on Health (including health preparedness and prevention) for individuals or households affected by the plague outbreak.
