The outbreak of a cholera epidemic in the province of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) in South Africa has made it critical for the health and hygiene education to be an integral component of the development of water systems. The current (March 2001) death toll from cholera in KZN is reported as 140, since mid-August 2000, a total of 70,558 people have been stricken (1). No cases have been reported in Emmaus. This paper gives an overview of the framework used to plan and conduct health and hygiene education in the Emmaus community of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.
