About our Cholera news

Latest news on cholera outbreaks, cases, vaccines, and treatment. Stay informed about this acute diarrheal illness caused by Vibrio cholerae bacteria, affecting millions worldwide.

Cholera is a severe gastrointestinal infection causing profuse watery diarrhea, vomiting, and rapid dehydration. Spread through contaminated water and food, cholera remains a significant global health threat, with an estimated 1.3 to 4 million cases and 21,000 to 143,000 deaths annually worldwide.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports a worrying surge in cholera cases, with over 700,000 cases reported in 2023 alone. Shortages of oral cholera vaccines have led to temporary suspension of the standard two-dose regimen in favor of a single-dose strategy to extend limited supplies. Key challenges include inadequate water, sanitation, and hygiene infrastructure in affected regions.

Cholera outbreaks disproportionately impact vulnerable communities, particularly in developing countries. International organizations and local governments are working together to improve access to clean water, promote hygiene practices, and distribute oral rehydration solutions. Personal stories highlight the human toll of the disease and the resilience of survivors.

First described in the 19th century, cholera has caused multiple pandemics throughout history. The disease played a crucial role in the development of modern epidemiology and public health measures. Today, the fight against cholera continues, with efforts focused on improving sanitation, vaccination campaigns, and rapid response to outbreaks.

Stay up-to-date on the global fight against cholera with our comprehensive NewsNow feed. We bring you the latest information from trusted sources, including the WHO, UNICEF, and leading health organizations, to keep you informed about this ongoing public health challenge and the tireless efforts to control and ultimately eliminate this preventable disease.
