Improved sanitation and better public health considerably reduce the risks of cholera outbreaks
Cholera requires immediate treatment because the disease can cause death within hours. Rehydration. The goal is to replace lost fluids and electrolytes using a simple rehydration solution, oral rehydration salts (ORS). The ORS solution is available as a powder that can be reconstituted in boiled or bottled water. We are actively working with the communities in Somalia to prevent and control both Acute Watery Diarrhoea and Cholera.
