Mapping Cholera in Bangladesh

Cholera lives silently in the water.

Cholera lives silently in the water.
Here in Bangladesh, though tap water is common, it certainly is not clean. The Vibrio cholerae bacteria contaminates the water lines due to leaks in the piped sewage systems.

Cholera Cot

Cholera Cot
This innovative design helps our partner, the ICDDRB, isolate and capture stool samples from a cholera patient in a bucket that sits below the hole in the cot. Most importantly, it allows the patient to continue lying down and receiving treatment during an episode without soiling his or her linens.

Matlab, BD is home of ICDDRB's community health research and will serve as the subcenter of our first phase of real-time mapping, scheduled for Spring-Summer 2013.

V0P and ICDDRB Matlab share a common interest in how GIS and mapping may be used to better understand cholera in Bangladesh. V0P will be producing its own map of Matlab in the coming months, demonstrating the spread of cholera in time and space at this smaller scale. First-phase real-time mapping is planned to span 50km outside of Matlab. The following spring/summer season, V0P hopes to expand to a 100km radius, and so on.
