Mapping the burden of cholera in sub-Saharan Africa and implications for control: an analysis of data across geographical scalesLessler, J; Moore, SM; Luquero, FJ; McKay, HS; Grais, RF; Henkens, M; Mengel, M; Dunoyer, J; M'bangombe, M; Lee, EC; et al. (Elsevier, 2018-03-01)Cholera remains a persistent health problem in sub-Saharan Africa and worldwide. Cholera can be controlled through appropriate water and sanitation, or by oral cholera vaccination, which provides transient (∼3 years) protection, although vaccine supplies remain scarce. We aimed to map cholera burden in sub-Saharan Africa and assess how geographical targeting could lead to more efficient interventions.
