1. Background

Chad is also located within the Lapeysonnie Meningitis belt. It has in the past experienced several epidemics as in 1983 with 3952 reported cases. This epidemic had striken the south-western part of the country.

The 1988 epidemic began in February in N'Djamena. Contrary to what happened in the two other countries, Ethiopia and on a minor scale in the Sudan, no epidemic occurred in 1989.
