The cholera outbreak in Nigeria has so far led to the deaths of more than 300 people with a further 6,000 cases reported in the past three months.
Health authorities say the epidemic could threaten the entire country and doctors are monitoring outbreaks in 12 of Nigeria's 36 states.
The spread of the disease is being blamed on heavy seasonal rains and the scarcity of clean water and proper sanitation, outbreaks have also been reported in Cameroon, Niger and Kenya.
In an Africa Have Your Say health special, we're asking, how much do you know about cholera and how it is spread? Are deaths preventable and if so how? Can cholera be eradicated?

Do you have children in an African nursery or creche? Are you worried about the type of education they are getting?
BBC Africa HYS listener Anne Mayanja from Uganda contacted us to suggest we discuss early childhood education in Africa.
Anne says the learning that toddlers receive between ages 1-5 is too focused on pushing academic achievement, while ignoring the child's personal, social and emotional development in those formative years.
In her opinion, this could harm the continent developing knowledgeable but well rounded future leaders. Do you agree with her?
In Norway for example children only begin to learn how to read from the age of 7. Would you like to see African nursery schools adopt a similar practice?
Is there too much focus on academic work and not enough social interaction for Africa's toddlers?

President Jacob Zuma has stepped into a debate raging over ANC proposals to change the way the media is regulated in South Africa.
Journalists argue media freedom and democracy will be threatened by the introduction of a parliamentary Media Appeals Tribunal and a law allowing the government to classify material currently not secret.
But the ANC says new legislation is needed to make journalists legally accountable for inaccurate reporting.
And, in a letter to the ANC published online, President Zuma has said "Does it [the media] have a role in promoting nation building? Is it a spectator, or does it have vested interests and an agenda, political and commercial, that it cherishes and promotes?"
Does President Zuma have a point? Should Africa's media play a role in promoting nation building? If so, how? Do you think the press in your country gets away with too much? How should the media be held to account?

Almost every day newspapers in many African countries carry reports of the sexual abuse of minors. It's an emotive and disturbing issue but we're keen here on Africa Have Your Say to hear how you think our societies should be dealing with child defilement.
Are there laws in your country that punish paedophiles? If so, do you think they are tough enough? Do we even recognise the existence of paedophilia? How can young children in your country be better protected against paedophiles?
