Cholera
What we have to say about your health and well being

What is it?

Cholera is bacterial infection that is characterised by watery diarrhoea. It is commonly caused by contaminated food and water.

Risk areas

Common in many low-income countries and is associated with poor sanitation and poor access to clean water. The overall risk for travellers is very low but the risk is far greater for those living in unsanitary conditions, for example relief workers in disaster or refugee areas.

The disease is endemic in Africa, Asia, Central and South America and is prevalent in areas where there is poor sanitation.

Prevention

Following good personal hygiene and safe food and water practices can help reduce the risk of acquiring cholera.

Vaccine schedule

Dukoral, a licensed vaccine effective against cholera, is available in the UK. It is not recommended for most travellers but for those whose activities or medical history puts them at increased risk. This includes:

  • Aid workers
  • Those going to areas of cholera outbreak and who will have limited access to safe water
