Identification of Priority Areas for Multisectoral Interventions (PAMIs) for cholera elimination

Technical guidance

The identification of Priority Areas for Multisectoral Interventions (PAMIs, formerly referred to as ‘hotspots’) for cholera elimination is among the first steps for countries to develop or revise a National Cholera Plan (NCP) for cholera elimination. This might correspond to countries where cholera outbreaks were reported in less than five percent of the NCP operational geographic units of the country over at least the past five years.

PAMIs identification

The method recommended by the GTFCC for the identification of PAMIs for cholera elimination is presented in a guidance document.

Guidance Document

To facilitate PAMIs identification, countries are encouraged to use an Excel-based tool and the corresponding step-by-step user guide.
