Cholera and Handwashing Fact Sheet

Cholera is a diarrheal disease that has a substantial impact on public health. Each year, it affects the lives of millions of people and contributes to the deaths of tens of thousands. Many of these are individuals who do not access effective treatment early enough after symptom onset. Handwashing with soap can significantly limit the risk of transmission and contain outbreaks.

In response to increasing cholera incidence and outbreaks around the world, The Global Public-Private Partnership for Handwashing has developed this fact sheet to outline the basic facts about cholera, its transmission, its treatment, and how handwashing and other critical water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) measures can play a role in its prevention.
