key cholera definitions

As the second step, countries will conduct a comprehensive situational analysis, which will involve the following: (1) cholera risk assessment, including a description of the country cholera epidemiological situation, and contextual and risk factors for spread; and (2) capacity assessment, including a description of current resources, capabilities, interventions, challenges and needs (by pillar) at the national level, in hotspots, and linkages to the community. The information gathered from the situational analysis will guide the formulation of the NCP while identifying gaps in technical/implementation capacity and funding. It should be noted that the situational analysis is a dynamic process and is to be updated as needed, depending on the stage of Global Roadmap implementation. It is recommended that the country consider conducting a multisectoral workshop to review the situational analysis to improve ownership before developing the NCP.
