The explosive nature of cholera epidemic over the years in different parts of the world has been a subject of interest to scientists in proffering interventions towards controlling its spread. Over the years many models has been created by the following people Capaso and Pavari – Fontana (1973), Codeco (2001), Hartley, Tien (2009), Mukandivare (2009) etc. In the present study, we modify the Cholera model proposed by Mukandivare incorporating three (3) containment options such as vaccination, Therapeutic treatment and water treatment and solved the system analytically using Homotopy Perturbation Method. The results shows that with improved use of vaccination, therapy and proper sanitation we have a more healthy population. This research is therefore recommended to modelers who desire to know how homotopy perturbation methods works. The computations were done and further analyzed mathematically using a computer symbolic package MAPLE 13.
