CORE Group has developed a module to improve preparedness for and response of communities in countries at risk of a cholera epidemic.

The lessons target mothers and caregivers of children under age five, a group that is at particular risk of death if infected. The module shares information about symptoms and risks; what families can do to prevent infection; how, when, and where to seek care; and what actions to take in the aftermath of an outbreak.
