Poverty and cholera in Kwazulu-Natal January 2001
Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Data and maps on poverty, sanitation, safe and clean water and the incidence of cholera were used to help contain the spread of cholera in the Kwazulu Natal province in January 2001. Poverty and cholera data sets showed that the cholera outbreak followed a river flood plain and moved through and towards poor areas.
