Prevent the spread of the disease by containing and properly disposing of infectious waste.
Provide a dedicated solution that addresses the high volumes of liquid stool typical in cholera patients.
These beds are an essential part of the infrastructure for cholera treatment, helping to ensure both patient care and public health safety.
