CCP supported the knowledge management, advocacy, documentation and dissemination activities of the project. Additionally, the project sought to advocate for the greater use of oral cholera vaccine as part of an integrated strategy to fight cholera and disseminate practical resources and how-to guides to help program managers and governments decide if, when, where and how to use the vaccine. DOVE published more than 30 peer-reviewed research articles and also conducted studies to address constraints to oral cholera vaccine use, use of vaccine during pregnancy and alternative delivery strategies, including the effectiveness of a single dose.
While working on the project 2013, CCP:
- Supported the development and publication of the Stop Cholera Toolkit, an online collection of practical resources and how-to guides to help program managers and governments help decide if, when, where and how to use the oral cholera vaccine to reduce cholera mortality, prevent cases and halt outbreaks.
- Supported the publication of “Field Stories” that highlight how the oral cholera vaccine has been successfully implemented in different settings, lessons learned and considerations for future implementers.
- Supported the creation of a manual for OCV campaigns, a document that can be adapted by program managers for training health care workers on how to carry out a vaccination campaign.
- Managed the StopCholera.org website and social media for DOVE @STOPCholera.
