A Hospital-Based Handwashing with Soap and Water Treatment Intervention to Reduce Cholera Among Household Contacts of Cholera Cases (CHoBI7): A Randomized Controlled Trial

Dhaka, Bangladesh


Summary

Household contacts of cholera patients are at 100 times higher risk of developing a cholera infection than the general population during the week post presentation of the index patient. In an effort to initiate a standard of care for this population, we developed a hospital-based handwashing with soap and water treatment intervention entitled CHoBI7(Cholera-Hospital-Based-Intervention-for-7-days). We are currently evaluating the CHoBI7 intervention in a randomized controlled trial.
