icddr,b joins global network to eradicate cholera
The International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) has joined a global initiative by Global Task Force on Cholera Control (GTFCC) which aims to reduce the number of death from Cholera by 90% within 2030. Global Task Force on Cholera Control (GTFCC) is a diverse network of more than 50 United Nations and international agencies, academic institutions, and NGOs that supports countries affected by the disease. An estimated 95,000 people die of Cholera outbreaks every year and the disease affects around 2.9 million people globally. The GTFCC’s new plan “Ending Cholera: A Global Roadmap to 2030” recognises that cholera spreads in endemic “hotspots” where predictable outbreaks of the disease occur for years. Focusing on the 47 countries affected by cholera, the GTFCC partners will support countries to reduce cholera deaths by 90% by 2030. The Global Roadmap aims to align resources, share best practice and strengthen partnerships between affected countries, donors and international agencies. It underscores the need for a coordinated approach to cholera control with country-level planning for early detection and response to outbreaks. If the roadmap can be implemented, up to 20 countries will be cholera-free by 2030. The map of cholera outbreak is essentially the same of a map of poverty and marginalisation. Cholera doesn’t happen by chance, it inordinately impacts communities already burdened by conflict, lack of infrastructure, poor health systems, and malnutrition.
