Cholera Outbreak Training and Shigellosis (COTS) Program

COTS is an e-book, funded by the US Agency for International Development, designed to export the clinical, scientific, and public health expertise on cholera and shigellosis from the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh. COTS provides a comprehensive, easily disseminated manual for quick training and management of outbreaks in resource-poor settings, and it is also ideal for use in classrooms. The website below provides links and instructions for downloading the COTS e-book (a ZIP file), the COTS program manuscript and pocket cards (PDFs), and the COTS program presentation (a Keynote file for MAC).
