Combating Cholera Caused by Climate Change (C5) is a multidisciplinary study that examines the risk and effects of climate-induced cholera on water stress and household hygiene in low-income area Tongi, in Bangladesh.

Focusing on water quantity and hygiene, the project will apply an innovative multi-disciplinary methodology to understand climate change's influence on cholera by identifying the relative risk based on environmental, behavioral, and water resource management factors.

The project is being carried out under The Section for Global Health, Department of Public Health.
