Publications

The GAAC team lists a number of publications on cholera. A resource base of hundreds of references is accessible through the site's search tool. This tool allows you to find information on cholera from a wide selection of documents (articles, reports and guidelines) and gives you access to these documents.

All documents are in their original version and in another language if the translation exists. A majority of the documents are open access (access to the full document), and some documents have a restricted access (free access only to the abstract). 
 

You can also suggest documents to share through our Contact page.

You will find below a selection of articles made by the GAAC secretariat ("Reference publications") as well as the newsletters published by the GAAC.

Environmental Determinants of Cholera Outbreaks in Inland Africa: A Systematic Review of Main Transmission Foci and Propagation Routes

Auteur(s): S. Rebaudet | B. Sudre | B. Faucher | R. Piarroux - Date de Publication: 2013-10-07 - Publication: Journal of Infectious Diseases - Resumé: Cholera is generally regarded as the prototypical waterborne and environmental disease. In Africa, available studies are scarce, and the relevance of this disease paradigm is questionable. Cholera outbreaks have been repeatedly reported far from the coasts: from 2009 through 2011, three-quarters of all cholera cases in Africa occurred in inland regions. Such outbreaks are either influenced by rainfall and subsequent floods or by drought- and water-induced stress. Their concurrence with global climatic events has also been observed. In lakes and rivers, aquatic reservoirs of Vibrio cholerae have been evocated. However, the role of these reservoirs in cholera epidemiology has not been established. Starting from inland cholera-endemic areas, epidemics burst and spread to various environments, including crowded slums and refugee camps. Human displacements constitute a major determinant of this spread. Further studies are urgently needed to better understand these complex dynamics, improve water and sanitation efforts, and eliminate cholera from Africa.
