EPIDEMIOLOGY• Cholera was prevalent in the s, but due to proper treatment of sewage and drinking water, has become rare in developed countries. • Cholera is a fecal disease, meaning that it spreads when the feces of an infected person come into contact with food or water. • Incidence: 1 in , worldwide. Cholera Prevention and Control Assessing the Options in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Education common cause of water contamination is poor sanitation. Thus, sanitary collection and disposal of excreta, both in the home and in cholera treatment centers, is a necessity. If excreta disposal is through waterbome sewage, the wnstewnter must be.
Cholera outbreaks can occur where water supplies, sanitation, food safety and hygiene practices are inadequate. Overcrowded communities with poor sanitation and unsafe drinking-water supplies are most frequently affected. It is estimated that there are between and million cases of cholera. The drastic intestinal secretion of fluid and electrolytes that is characteristic of cholera is the result of reasonably well understood cellular and biochemical actions of the toxin secreted by.
The reemergence of cholera in Kenya in the first months of suggests that cholera remains a public health threat. This study employed a mixed methods approach to investigate the successes and challenges of cholera prevention and control in Kenya through analysis of cholera surveillance data and key informant interviews. Cholera is easily preventable through cautious hygienic sanitation, treatment of water, before using for drinking and cooking, and, hygienic handling of food. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends boiling water and treatment with chlorine before use.

Cholera was prevalent in the U.S. in the s, before modern water and sewage treatment systems eliminated its spread by contaminated water.
Only about 10 cases of cholera are reported each year.

Prevention of Cholera. Cholera is a disease caused by bacteria that produce a watery diarrhea that can rapidly lead to dehydration.; Cholera symptoms and signs include a rapid onset of copious, smelly diarrhea that resembles rice water and may lead to signs of dehydration (for example, vomiting, wrinkled skin, low blood pressure, dry mouth, rapid heart rate).; Cholera is most frequently transmitted by water sources.

The development of a vaccine containing live cholera involves reducing the bacteria’s virulence and ability to cause diarrhea while preserving its ability to induce an immune response.
One candidate, Peru, developed by NIAID-funded researchers in the Harvard University laboratory of investigator John Mekalanos, Ph.D., has shown promise and.
Cholera is caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, a tiny microbe that can infect the intestines. The physical signs and symptoms of cholera aren't caused by the bacterium itself, but rather a toxin it produces once it's inside the body.
That toxin disrupts the way cells absorb and process fluids and electrolytes, forcing them to go in just one direction: out. Bycholera had spread to Thailand, Indonesia (killingpeople on the island of Java alone) and the Philippines.
