CSQUID-cholera

Vibrio cholerae bacteria.

On November 2014, some members of the CSQUID team published a study on cholera transmission in Bangladesh in the PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases journal. Participating researchers included Jonathan Sugimoto, Eben Kenah, Elizabeth Halloran, Yang Yang, and Ira Longini.

The study quantified the relative contribution of direct, within-household exposure to endemic cholera transmission. Quantifying the relative contribution of direct exposure is important for planning effective prevention and control measures. Researchers concluded that direct exposure contributes substantially to endemic transmission of symptomatic cholera in an urban setting. The study suggest that the role of direct transmission must be considered when planning cholera control activities.
