Abstract for: Cholera in Zimbabwe

By the end of December 2008, alarming reports and articles concerning the cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe received plenty of international media coverage. By that time 30000 cases of cholera infections and 1600 cholera deaths had been reported. In the first week of January 2009, a System Dynamics simulation model related to this cholera epidemic was created which was turned into a ‘hot’ testing/teaching case. Although the model contains some bold assumptions, the dynamics of the model is sufficiently interesting for to be presented. This case is a System Dynamics study under uncertainty focused on exploring the general dynamics over time.
