Communication for development during cholera outbreaks seeks to share relevant, action-oriented information so that people in affected communities know how to protect themselves, their families and their communities, including those with disabilities, the elderly and other especially vulnerable groups from the disease. It is a consultative process among programme and communication specialists, local authorities, change agents and communities.

The link below is to the Framework for Developing an Integrated Communication Strategy for the Introduction of Oral Cholera Vaccines in Cholera Prevention and Control Programmes. It provides guidance on how to include oral cholera vaccine in broader cholera prevention and control communication plans, useful resources and tools and key reference documents to develop an integrated OCV communication strategy.
