The Global Task Force on Cholera Control (GTFCC) brings together all multi-sector technical partners from around the world to support countries in their fight against cholera, offering an effective and well-coordinated platform whose secretariat is hosted by the World Health Organization (WHO). Launching the strategy titled Ending Cholera: A Global Roadmap to 2030, the GTFCC partners aim to reduce global cholera deaths by 90%. With the commitment of cholera-affected countries, technical partners, and donors, as many as 20 countries could eliminate disease transmission by 2030.
The Global Roadmap is based on three strategic axes:
- Early detection and quick response to contain outbreaks at an early stage;
- A multi-sectoral approach to prevent cholera in hotspots in endemic countries (including improved water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and through use of oral cholera vaccines (OCV));
- An effective mechanism of coordination for technical support, resource mobilization, and partnership at local and global levels – with the GTFCC providing a strong framework to support countries in intensifying efforts to control cholera.
