How can cholera be prevented?
You can lower your risk by:
- eating and drinking safely
- washing your hands often and properly
- staying in places with higher standards of cleanliness
Consult a health care provider or visit a travel health clinic preferably 6 weeks before you travel.
There is a vaccine that protects against cholera for those at high risk. This includes aid or humanitarian workers or those who must travel to high-risk affected areas.
Your health care provider may recommend the vaccine depending on your risk factors, such as:
- where you are travelling
- if you have limited access to clean water
