The Impact of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Interventions to Control Cholera: a Systematic Review

Abstract

This paper presents a systematic literature review investigating the function, use and impact of WASH interventions implemented to control cholera. It presents findings from eighteen studies of which only five reported a health outcome and concludes that there is a distinct gap in knowledge of which interventions are most appropriate for a given context and thus a lack of evidence to help guide implementers during a cholera outbreak
