Stratégie "Bouclier / Coup de poing " contre le cholera

Cette stratégie est fondée sur une approche basée sur l’analyse du risque et des évidences et connaissance développée, grâce à une recherche opérationnelle continue et à des études pluridisciplinaires qui soutiennent  l’expansion des connaissances et de l'efficacité dans la préparation au choléra, les interventions d'urgence et l'intervention à long terme. Les épidémiologistes, les spécialistes de WASH, les professionnels de la santé, les anthropologues et les spécialistes de la mobilisation communautaire travaillent ensemble pour atteindre un objectif commun: l'élimination du choléra. Ce concept est une langue commune pour une stratégie proactive, transfrontalière et multidisciplinaire pour prévenir la propagation du choléra. Ceci permet de construire des ponts entre les programmes d'intervention d'urgence et de développement
