Cholera Treatment Kit

According to the WHO, over 170,000 cases of cholera were reported worldwide in 2015. It is life threatening, with babies and children being the most vulnerable. But cholera is easily treatable with the right supplies at the right time. The Direct Relief Cholera Kit follows WHO guidelines and contains the supplies needed to treat 100 cholera patients.

What's Inside

Each kit contains more than 50 items needed to care for people with cholera. A severe case of cholera can become deadly within hours, but with access to safe drinking water and a few common medical supplies, such as oral rehydration salts and IV fluids, most people recover. The prepackaged kit contains the necessary supplies to treat 100 cholera patients. The kit costs $5,500, or $55 per patient. Learn More
