The second edition of health, science and development podcasts from SciDev.Net focuses on cholera epidemics in Cameroon and measles outbreaks in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

As part of a series of podcasts funded by the Wellcome Trust and hosted by SciDev.Net Sylvie Akoussan looks at the cholera epidemic in northern Cameroon before shifting her attention to measles in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Her report, in French, asks important questions about the quality of tap water in Africa and whether this has an impact on the health of its citizens.

This second podcast, as well as being available on SciDev.Net, will also be broadcast to around 12 million people in Francophone Africa. The idea is to work closely with World Vision International and Africa CDC to monitor how the podcast impacts on perceptions of Ebola treatment as part of the PANDORA project coordinated by UCL.
