All activities related to mother and child health and nutrition have been conducted as planned: normal deliveries have been done under the supervision of trained midwives and by traditional birth assistants, and women with complicated pregnancies have been referred to Thai hospitals. The project was able to provide safe drinking water and maintain latrine coverage above 99% in both camps. The outbreak was controlled with the support of Thai Health Authorities.
