Regional shield and sword strategy
The cholera platform is promoting an integrated and targeted approach to control and prevent cholera outbreaks known as the “shield and sword strategy”. The approach is based on the integration of WASH and Epidemiological fields and on targeting high risk areas, population and practices. The sword is an intervention during an outbreak in affected areas, from the first suspected cases that allows a short delay in response and which is based on case investigation and mapping. The shield is characterized by sustainable preventive Water, Sanitation and Hygiene interventions outside of epidemic periods in the priority areas defined as being specifically at risk for cholera. The shield is also implemented during emergency situations and its aim is to prevent the spread of outbreaks by protecting populations not yet affected.
