Organizing the agenda and preparing funding for future research on water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and cholera.
Water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions during epidemics are poorly documented and require targeted, high-level research into the effectiveness and impact of interventions. in different contexts. In July 2018, an integrated research agenda on Cholera has been defined for the Global Task Force on Cholera Control (GTFCC) Working Groups, in alignment with the GTFCC Ending Cholera Road map. Building upon research gaps identified in key publications, six priorities areas have been acknowledged and prioritised.
EpiLinks supported the development of a research plan, for the six priority research areas identified for WASH and cholera. The overall objective was to identify gaps in order to allow coordination of future research. A fundraising and advocacy plan has been developed to communicate and mobilize resources from the donor community.
