Cost-benefit comparisons of investments in improved water supply and cholera vaccination programs
Vaccination in combination with other interventions or infrastructure investments offers opportunities for cost-sharing between programs.
This paper presents the first cost-benefit comparison of improved water supply investments and cholera vaccination programs. The study results showed that improved water supply interventions combined with targeted cholera vaccination programs are much more likely to yield attractive cost-benefit ratio outcomes than a community-based vaccination program alone.
