Declining global trends of cholera: Areas to strengthen and the way forward

PDF

Cholera has been regarded as one of the major public health concerns of infectious origin in the low- and middle-income nations1,2. The disease remains highly fatal in the absence of the provision of appropriate treatment. In-fact, the available global estimates suggest that on an average the disease infects 2.5 million people each year of which 0.14 million people succumb to death due to the unavailability of treatment services1,2. It is important to acknowledge that the disease predominantly affects poorest and most susceptible individuals and that each and every death attributed to cholera is preventable considering the tools which we are having at present.
