Welcome to Cholera Cafe'
Cholera Cafe' is a space dedicated to international health care workers made by international health care workers. It provides free resources on different disciplines that are useful in international humanitarian
aid and a guestbook through which to interact and/or join the group.
The aim is to share information of epidemiological and humanitarian significance among the humanitarian community with the intent of ultimately improving the conditions of vulnerable people.
The team that contributed to Cholera Cafe' is diverse but accomunated by direct experiences in international relief and development programmes focusing on health. It consists of medical doctors (infectious disease physicians and public health specialists), legal advisors, psychologists and experts in geopolitics and financial management. All their contributions to the website deal with aspects of international health that partain their specific fields, offering a diverse and possibly more comprehensive view, of issues that each of us has experienced whilst working abroad in relief or deveolpment missions.
How Cholera Cafe' has changed and why
Cholera Cafe' has been active since September 2006.
The first version of the website was equipped with a php news and forum function that was difficult to keep up and did not attract many members, possibly because of the selective nature of the topics we deal with.
