SURTO DE CÓLERA. AVALIAR A RESPOSTA A UM SURTO E MELHORAR A PREPARAÇÃO

Organização Mundial da Saúde , (2006)


A resposta a um surto de cólera focaliza geralmente os aspectos médicos que são importantes para reduzir a mortalidade. Contudo, há necessidade de uma resposta mais abrangente para limitar a propagação da doença. Como a resposta a surtos é geralmente dirigida por profi ssionais médicos, pode haver tendência para negligenciar outros aspectos, tais como problemas ambientais ou de comunicação.

Fighting Cholera - Operational Handbook: Response to outbreaks and risk prevention in endemic areas

Solidarités International, (2018)


Cholera is a diarrhoeal disease that is usually contracted when drinking water contaminated with Vibrio cholerae bacteria. The fight against this disease requires a multidisciplinary approach that combines a water, hygiene and sanitation (WaSH) response with a monitoring system, improved water supply and quality, sanitation and hygiene, and a health response with the treatment of the disease itself.

Single-Dose Cholera Vaccine in Response to an Outbreak in Zambia

Ferreras, E.; , (2018)


N Engl J Med 2018; 378:577-579; DOI: 10.1056/NEJMc1711583 A dose of oral vaccine provides effective short-term protection against cholera during an outbreak, a study in Zambia shows. According to researchers, a shortage in the global stockpile of cholera vaccines meant that single-dose oral vaccination was necessary to tackle an outbreak in Lusaka, Zambia, in February 2016. The emergency vaccination campaign was implemented in April 2016, targeting more than 500,000 people in Lusaka’s overcrowded township areas. The 2016 outbreak happened when Zambia had not reported a case of cholera in four years. To determine the effectiveness of the single-dose cholera vaccine, the researchers enrolled 66 patients with confirmed cholera and 330 people without the disease who were neighbours of the patients. According to the study the effectiveness of the single dose vaccination was about 90 per cent.
