Rapid Response to a Cholera outbreak in Hodeidah governorate, Yemen 2010.

Introduction: Cholera remains a health problem in many parts of the word. Refugees, poverty, unsafe water supply and poor sanitation are an opportunity for spreading Vibrio cholera. Yemen’s proximity to the horn of Africa allows about 200-300 individuals to cross to Yemen daily, mainly through Hodeidah, on the red sea. This has resulted in spread of diseases to Yemen, including cholera. We investigated a cholera outbreak in Hodeidah in August 2010. This report summarizes the results of this investigation.
