This document outlines a uniform approach to conducting surveys regarding the knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP surveys) of communities regarding diarrheal disease, cholera and cholera vaccines, water, sanitation, and hygiene, and healthcare access that can be adapted for the needs of each setting. The main overall objectives of this protocol are the following: (1) to provide general guidance on conducting KAP surveys for evaluating OCV campaigns and related activities and (2) to provide implementers with adaptable KAP survey tools for use in the field.
This document is divided into five sections that provide information on cholera disease and current oral cholera vaccines, KAP surveys, survey protocol and questionnaire development, survey implementation, and translating findings into action. The annexes provide sample documents that may be modified for use in the field.
