Cholera prevention in Lake Chad Basin

Household water treatment and safe storage (HWTS) practices are the most promising instruments to increase water quality at the point of use and significant reductions of diarrheal prevalence can be expected from their consistent usage. This projects aims to implement and evaluate community-based cholera prevention activities, based on data-driven intervention with a particular focus on household water treatment and safe storage. The geographic focus will be on communities living in the Lake Chad Basin. Based on the findings, practical tools for adoption by governments and public health practitioners are planned in collaboration with WHO.
