|Guidelines for Cholera Control (WHO - OMS, 1993, 68 p.)|
These guidelines have been prepared by the Global Task Force on Cholera Control of the World Health Organization to help managers of national diarrhoeal disease control programmes and others responsible for implementing cholera control activities. They may also be useful to international, bilateral, and non-governmental agencies in deciding on appropriate means of assisting countries to control cholera outbreaks.
The WHO Global Task Force on Cholera Control was created in April 1991, and is comprised of representatives from the Programme for Control of Diarrhoeal Diseases, the Community Water Supply and Sanitation unit, the Food Safety programme, the Strengthening of Epidemiological and Statistical Services unit, the Office of Information, the Microbiology and Immunology Support Services unit, the Office of External Coordination, the Division of Health Education, the Division of Emergency Relief Operations, and the Action Programme on Essential Drugs. A staff member of the United Nations Children's Fund (UMCEF) regularly contributes to the work of the Task Force.
