Cholera is an acute diarrheal disease caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholerae. Each year, 100'000 people die from cholera. The links between cholera, weather and climate are visible in the seasonality of cholera globally, but evidence to date illustrates that the relationships between them are highly heterogeneous across settings, with differences in both the direction and strength of the associations. Before we can devise evidence-based scenarios on how climate change may influence cholera burden in the future, more detailed case studies, using more robust climate and epidemiological data from across the globe, are needed. In the meantime, provision of sustainable water and sanitation is of the highest priority to offset potential impacts of climate change on cholera.
