Cholera remains a significant public health problem with the latest reports stating 132,121 cases in 38 countries, including 2420 deaths. In October 2017, the Global Task Force On Cholera Control partners (of which World Vision is included) called for a commitment from all stakeholders to support cholera affected countries to end cholera transmission. A global strategy to end cholera was written. Ending Cholera—A Global Roadmap to 2030 operationalises the new global strategy for cholera control at the country level and provides a concrete path toward a world in which cholera is no longer a threat to public health. By implementing the strategy between now and 2030, the Global Task Force on Cholera Control (GTFCC) partners will support countries to reduce cholera deaths by 90 percent. With the commitment of cholera-affected countries, technical partners, and donors, as many as 20 countries could eliminate disease transmission by 2030. This presentation is an Introduction to the Global Task Force on Cholera Control, an Introduction to Ending Cholera: A Global Roadmap to 2030 including roles of partners, and an overview of resources available for the field.
