There are sixteen Mission Critical Functions that determine whether a cholera outbreak can be stopped effectively in a Health Capacity Zone (or local area).  In effectively addressing the gaps in an area’s Mission Critical Functions, deaths can be rapidly reduced, severity cases can be rapidly curtailed, diminishing burden of illness, as well as mild cases and infections.  However, if all 16 Mission Critical Functions are not properly addressed, cholera will tend to resurge as the water tables rise again, of other socio-ecological conditions emerge that raise the probability of rapid spread of this highly infectious, lethal pandemic agent.

 

Below are questions that must be assessed as a Phase II Cholera Epidemic Management Initiative project is engaged within a specific Health Capacity Zone.
