Cholera originated in Asia, but now presents a global threat.

This acute intestinal disease is biologically caused by exposure to the vibrio cholerae bacteria, but it’s fed socially by poor water and sanitation, limited health systems, crowding and poverty.

This leads in many cases to high numbers of deaths, high costs to health systems and regular social disruption.
