Cholera

Since 2021, there has been an increase in cholera cases and their geographical distribution globally. This is due to climate change, conflict, population displacement and poverty, which are limiting people’s access to safe water and sanitation. Trusted, clear and effective communication and engagement approaches are critical to ensure that fear, panic and rumours do not undermine cholera responses. You can use the tools and resources in this section to incorporate CEA into your cholera operations.
