Abstract:

This program examines an epidemic of cholera that broke out in the early 1990s in Bangladesh and affected many adults, who usually are less susceptible to the disease. Scientists at the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh, decoded the genetic structure of the organism responsible for the disease and discovered a new mutation, cholera 0139. The film shows the conditions under which cholera flourishes and the often simple measures that can halt its spread and reduce the death rate, such as oral rehydration salts (ORS). It also describes the difficult issues that arise when a developing country that relies on exports to sustain its economy must disclose the presence of a feared disease that might cause other nations not to purchase its products.
