Cholera Outbreak Training and Shigella (COTS) Program
The COTS program website offers a host of invaluable cholera resources, including:
- a distance learning course on “Emergency Response to Cholera and Shigella Epidemics”
- an extended manuscript covering clinical management of cholera and recommendations for before, during and after an outbreak
- a series of health worker pocket cards and patient information sheets in English, French and Creole
- downloads specific to the Haiti 2010 outbreak
The collaborators on the COTS program are the ICDDR,B (International Centre for Diarrheal Disease Research, Bangladesh) and STI (Swiss Tropical Institute).
