A GREAT NUMBER OF DISEASES ARE ENTIRELY OR PARTIALLY ATTRIBUTABLE TO OR LINKED WITH INADEQUATE DRINKING WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE (WASH).
This makes the provision of safe WASH, as well as the implementation of healthy hygiene behaviours vital. We look at the various links between global health and water security in rural, urban and indigenous communities globally. Our research focusses on:
- Water-related infectious disease exposure and prevention;
- Local knowledge, health risk perceptions and impact on behaviour;
- Use of data to inform decision-making;
- Mixing methods and triangulation of data.
