Cholera Rapid Response Teams (RRTs) in Humanitarian and Fragile Contexts

Project Status:

Ongoing Projects

Lead Faculty:

Spiegel, Paul

Conduct a comparative analysis across different countries to determine factors and indicators that support optimal delivery mechanisms and interventions for WASH and health RRTs for cholera in humanitarian settings and fragile states according to various contexts.

The specific aims are to:

1. Assess and analyze the various characteristics of different WASH and health cholera RRTs (and any integration between the two), such as delivery mechanism components and intervention types.

2. Explore methods to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of WASH and health RRTs to the extent feasible: a. Assess and analyze the measurement of key RRT indicators, including those outlined in UNICEF’s RRT Global Review related to the above-mentioned characteristics and how they have been applied in the countries studied; b. Assess and analyze the effects of the RRT activities on the epi-curve of cholera epidemic.

3. Document lessons learned and provide guidance for future implementation of cholera RRTs in humanitarian and fragile settings in different contexts.
