Cholera Hotspots - Latest Update

cameroun hotspot vignetteWe are pleased to announce the release of the Cholera Hotspots Updates 2017.

A cholera hotspot is defined by the Global Task Force for Cholera Control (GTFCC) as a “geographically limited area (e.g. city, administrative level 2 or health district catchment area) where environmental, cultural and/or socioeconomic conditions facilitate the transmission of the disease and where cholera persists or re-appears regularly. Hotspots play a central role in the spread of the disease to other areas”.

The Hotspot studies update conducted by the Regional Cholera Platform aim to identify areas at high risk of cholera, characterize the contexts of transmission, and formulate specific actions to reduce the cholera burden.
