Cholera Roadmap Research Agenda
The Cholera Roadmap Research Agenda identifies knowledge gaps most important to cholera experts and stakeholders and establishes a prioritised list of research questions that, when answered, will have a significant impact on achieving the Cholera Roadmap goals.
Accelerating Roadmap progress through evidence, optimisation, and innovation
Together, the cholera control community can align our efforts and resources to answer the most pressing cholera research questions of our time and encourage discovery research and innovation.
To achieve the ambitious goals of Ending Cholera: A Global Roadmap to 2030, the partners of the GTFCC and cholera-affected countries need to accelerate progress in the coming years. In response to requests by the cholera control community, GTFCC partners launched a process to develop a prioritised Cholera Roadmap Research Agenda using the Child Health and Nutrition Research Initiative (CHNRI) approach. A prioritised list of cholera research questions was identified through consultations with 177 cholera experts and other stakeholders operating at global, regional and country levels.
The agenda provides a list of the top 20 highest-priority research questions, along with the top 5 priorities per Roadmap Pillar – oral cholera vaccine (OCV), water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH), surveillance, and case management. In addition, it outlines the three highest priority areas for discovery research.
