Criteria for successful sanitation programmes in low income countries. (1/351)

In the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-90), the development of a consensus on the concept of sanitation and the planning and implementation of effective and efficient sanitation programmes was not emphasized. Yet lack of good sanitation is a growing burden and environmental threat. Significant improvement of human health cannot be achieved without good environmental sanitation conditions and practices. A consensus on what makes a sanitation programme successful can help to conserve limited funds and spend those available more wisely. It will also help to reduce the increasing flows of waste poisoning precious sources of drinking water. This article was written to stimulate discussion on what attributes can be taken as characteristic of good environmental sanitation programmes, and on which indicators can be used to assess those attributes in actual sanitation programmes.  (+info)

A reassessment of the cost-effectiveness of water and sanitation interventions in programmes for controlling childhood diarrhoea. (2/351)

Cost-effectiveness analysis indicates that some water supply and sanitation (WSS) interventions are highly cost-effective for the control of diarrhoea among under-5-year-olds, on a par with oral rehydration therapy. These are relatively inexpensive "software-related" interventions such as hygiene education, social marketing of good hygiene practices, regulation of drinking-water, and monitoring of water quality. Such interventions are needed to ensure that the potentially positive health impacts of WSS infrastructure are fully realized in practice. The perception that WSS programmes are not a cost-effective use of health sector resources has arisen from three factors: an assumption that all WSS interventions involve construction of physical infrastructure, a misperception of the health sector's role in WSS programmes, and a misunderstanding of the scope of cost-effectiveness analysis. WSS infrastructure ("hardware") is generally built and operated by public works agencies and financed by construction grants, operational subsidies, user fees and property taxes. Health sector agencies should provide "software" such as project design, hygiene education, and water quality regulation. Cost-effectiveness analysis should measure the incremental health impacts attributable to health sector investments, using the actual call on health sector resources as the measure of cost. The cost-effectiveness of a set of hardware and software combinations is estimated, using US$ per case averted, US$ per death averted, and US$ per disability-adjusted life year (DALY) saved.  (+info)

Variations in infant mortality rates among municipalities in the state of Ceara, Northeast Brazil: an ecological analysis. (3/351)

BACKGROUND: Infant mortality rates vary substantially among municipalities in the State of Ceara, from 14 to 193 per 1000 live births. Identification of the determinants of these differences can be of particular importance to infant health policy and programmes in Brazil where local governments play a pivotal role in providing primary health care. METHODS: Ecological study across 140 municipalities in the State of Ceara, Brazil. RESULTS: To determine the interrelationships between potential predictors of infant mortality, we classified 11 variables into proximate determinants (adequate weight gain and exclusively breastfeeding), health services variables (prenatal care up-to-date, participation in growth monitoring, immunization up-to-date, and decentralization of health services), and socioeconomic factors (female literacy rate, household income, adequate water supply, adequate sanitation, and per capita gross municipality product), and included the variables in each group simultaneously in linear regression models. In these analyses, only one of the proximate determinants (exclusively breastfeeding (inversely), R2 = 9.3) and one of the health services variables (prenatal care up-to-date (inversely), R2 = 22.8) remained significantly associated with infant mortality. In contrast, female literacy rate (inversely), household income (directly) and per capita GMP (inversely) were independently associated with the infant mortality rate (for the model including the three variables R2 = 25.2). Finally, we considered simultaneously the variables from each group, and selected a model that explained 41% of the variation in infant mortality rates between municipalities. The paradoxical direct association between household income and infant mortality was present only in models including female illiteracy rate, and suggests that among these municipalities, increases in income unaccompanied by improvements in female education may not substantially reduce infant mortality. The lack of independent associations between inadequate sanitation and infant mortality rates may be due to the uniformly poor level of this indicator across municipalities and provides no evidence against its critical role in child survival. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that promotion of exclusive breastfeeding and increased prenatal care utilization, as well as investments in female education would have substantial positive effects in further reducing infant mortality rates in the State of Ceara.  (+info)

Fin-de-siecle Philadelphia and the founding of the Medical Library Association. (4/351)

Philadelphia at the time of the founding of the Medical Library Association (MLA) is described. Several factors that promoted the birth of the association are discussed, including the rapid increase in the labor force and the rise of other health related professions, such as the American Hospital Association and the professionalization of nursing. The growth of the public hygiene movement in Philadelphia at the time of Sir William Osler's residency in the city is discussed. Finally, the rapid growth of the medical literature is considered a factor promoting the development of the association. This article continues the historical consideration of the MLA begun in the author's article on the three founders of the association. The background information is drawn from the items listed in the bibliography, and the conclusions are those of the author.  (+info)

Seroprevalence of human cysticercosis in Maputo, Mozambique. (5/351)

We carried out a serosurvey for cysticercosis among people visiting the Central Hospital of Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, between January and June 1993. A standardized questionnaire was designed to obtain information on demographic, socioeconomic, environmental, and behavioral characteristics related to the transmission of the infection. Four hundred eighty-nine individuals were tested for anti-cysticercosis antibodies: 222 blood donors and patients from the Department of Orthopedics, 148 patients from the Department of Neurology, and 119 patients from the Department of Psychiatry. The overall positivity rate was 12.1% (59 of 489). Anti-cysticercus antibodies was detected in 14.9% of the blood donors and patients from the Department of Orthopedics, 11.5% of the patients from the Department of Neurology, and 7.6% of the patients from the Department of Psychiatry. Living in poor sanitary conditions seems to be an important factor related to human cysticercosis in Maputo, Mozambique.  (+info)

Considerations regarding mass vaccination against typhoid fever as an adjunct to sanitation and public health measures: potential use in an epidemic in Tajikistan. (6/351)

We report on the ongoing epidemic of typhoid fever in Tajikistan that started in 1996. It has involved more than 24,000 cases to date, and is characterized by multiple point sources, overflow of sewage, contaminated municipal water, and person-to-person spread. Of the Salmonella typhi isolates available for testing in western laboratories, more than 90% are multidrug-resistant (MDR). Most recently, 28 (82%) of 34 isolates are resistant to ciprofloxacin, representing the first reported epidemic of quinolone-resistant typhoid fever. In the past, mass immunization during typhoid fever epidemics has been discouraged. A review of this policy is recommended in light of the alarming emergence of quinolone-resistant strains of S. typhi, the availability of improved vaccines, and the ongoing epidemic in Tajikistan. Mass immunization may be a useful measure for the control of prolonged MDR typhoid fever epidemics, as an adjunct to correction of municipal infrastructure and public health intervention.  (+info)

Hepatitis A incidence rate estimates from a pilot seroprevalence survey in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. (7/351)

BACKGROUND: To assess the impact of water sanitation and sewage disposal, part of a major environmental control programme in Rio de Janeiro, we carried out sero-prevalence studies for Hepatitis A virus (HAV) in three micro-regions in Rio de Janeiro. Each region varied with regard to level of sanitation. We are interested in assessing the discriminating power of age-specific prevalence curves for HAV as a proxy for improvement in sanitation. These curves will serve as baseline information to future planned surveys as the sanitation programme progresses. METHODS: Incidence rate curves from prevalence data are estimated parametrically via a Weibull-like survival function, and non-parametrically via maximum likelihood and monotonic splines. Sera collected from children and adults in the three areas are used to detect antibodies against HAV through ELISA. RESULTS: We compare baseline incidence curves at the three sites estimated by the three methods. We observe a strong negative correlation between level of sanitation and incidence rates for HAV infection. Incidence estimates yielded by the parametric and non-parametric approaches tend to agree at early ages in the microregion showing the best level of sanitation and to increasingly disagree in the other two. CONCLUSION: Our results support the choice of HAV as a sentinel disease that is associated with level of sanitation. We also introduce monotonic splines as a novel non-parametric approach to estimate incidence from prevalence data. This approach outperforms current estimating procedures.  (+info)

The impact of economic sanctions on health and human rights in Haiti, 1991-1994. (8/351)

OBJECTIVES: This report examines the impact of an economic embargo from 1991 to 1994 on health, well-being, and human rights in Haiti. METHODS: Data from surveillance systems for nutrition, reportable diseases, and hospital diagnoses were combined with survey data and interviews with affected women, governmental representatives, diplomats, and staff of nongovernmental organizations. RESULTS: Changes included declining income, rising unemployment, poorer nutrition, declining infant mortality, rising mortality among 1- to 4-year-olds, decreased attention to children's well-being and education, and family breakdown. Survival strategies among poor Haitians included changed dietary habits, informal-sector economic activity, moving in with relatives, selling domestic goods, increased informal unions among couples, decreased school attendance, and indentured servitude among children. CONCLUSIONS: The implementation of economic sanctions in Haiti resulted in extensive violations of rights; the impact was greatest on the most disadvantaged Haitians. Many Haitian and international supporters of democracy were unaware of the extensive negative impact that sanctions could have. The impact continues now, 5 years after sanctions ended. Modified policies reduced some of the burden of sanctions, and international assistance prevented what otherwise might have become a humanitarian disaster during sanctions.  (+info)

A systematic review of the literature on the effects of water and sanitation in schools was performed. The goal was to characterize the impacts of water and sanitation inadequacies in the academic environment. Published peer reviewed literature was screened and articles that documented the provision of water and sanitation at schools were considered. Forty-one peer-reviewed papers met the criteria of exploring the effects of the availability of water and/or sanitation facilities in educational establishments. Chosen studies were divided into six fields based on their specific foci: water for drinking, water for handwashing, water for drinking and handwashing, water for sanitation, sanitation for menstruation and combined water and sanitation. The studies provide evidence for an increase in water intake with increased provision of water and increased access to water facilities. Articles also report an increase in absenteeism from schools in developing countries during menses due to inadequate sanitation
Unsafe sanitation is a massive problem that is becoming more urgent as our global population increases and trends like water scarcity and urbanization intensify. About 4.5 billion people-more than half the worlds population-either practice open defecation or use unsafe sanitation facilities and services. To be effective, sanitation must be carefully managed at all stages, from the point that waste is collected and contained to how it is transported and treated. If there are gaps or breaks at any stage, then harmful human waste flows into surface waters and fields where children play and people of all ages live, eat, drink and bathe.. Poor sanitation, which is widely accepted as a chief contributor to waterborne diseases, is the cause of more than 1,200 deaths of children under five-years-old per day, more than AIDS, measles, and tuberculosis combined. Inadequate sanitation and hygiene were the cause of more than half a million deaths from diarrhea alone, in 2016. Despite the indisputable ...

Diarrhoeal diseases are still a major challenge in Nepal because of inadequate safe water supply, poor sanitation and living conditions. However, several other factors such as the literacy rate, socio-economic status, and social, religious or personal perception of the cause of disease may influence the rate of morbidity and mortality of diarrhoeal diseases. A yearly minimum death of 30,000 and morbidity of 3.3 episodes per child was estimated due to diarrhoea. An environmental health education programme, along with water supply and sanitation intervention, is an effective mitigation measure to reduce diarrhoeal diseases in Nepal. ...

The expert noted that the Latin American region met the UN Millennium Development Goal target for water in 2010, but the advancements are still not reaching all. Regarding sanitation, the goal remains unachieved and 3 million people still practice open defecation. Because of stricter definitions for the related goals within the framework of the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development these will reveal an even more dramatic lack of access to safe water and sanitation in the region, he warned. When people have inadequate living and housing conditions, where they do not have access to safely managed water services, they tend to store water in unsafe ways that attract mosquitos, the UN expert on adequate housing, Leilani Farha, noted. In addition, poor sanitation systems where wastewater flows through open channels and is disposed of in unsafe pits leads to stagnant water and unfit housing - a perfect habitat for breeding mosquitos. The right to the full enjoyment of the highest attainable ...
Watershed management, an ancient concept, was defined in Vedic texts from India that date from 1,000 B.C. This concept has been an integral part of forest and rangeland management in North America throughout the 20th century, but its scope has broadened significantly. Although the Forest Reserve Act of 1891 created the reserves that were to become the core of the National Forest System, it was the Pettigrew Amendment to the 1897 Sundry Civil Appropriations Bill that defined the purpose of the forest reserves. The amendment stated that the reserves could be established only to ...improve and protect the forest within the reservation, or for the purpose of securing favorable conditions of water flows.... Clearly, the interpretation of watershed management within the context of forestry in 1897 was for water supply and flood prevention. By mid-century, forest and watershed management had broadened to encompass recreation, range, wildlife, and fish purposes (Multiple Use Act of 1960). In the ...
Sanitation is a passion, not a job, said Noma Neseni last year at the Global Forum on Sanitation and Hygiene in Mumbai, India. I became a human rights commissioner because of toilets. What is gender equality or poverty alleviation when we are forced to defecate in the open?.

BACKGROUND: Parasitic infection is the most prevalent among rural communities in warm and humid regions and where water, hygiene and sanitation facilities are inadequate. Such infection occurs in rural areas where water supplies are not enough to drink and use, and in the absence of environmental sanitation, when the rubbish and other wastes increased, and sewage and waste water are not properly treated. Hence the aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of intestinal parasitosis and associated risk factors ...
The improvement of water quality is closely associated with man-environment relationships. There should be a dialogue between all actors and the community when undertaking water and sanitation activities. For positive results and better sustainability, the community should be involved and participate at all stages of water development and environmental sanitation schemes. A combination of safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and hygiene practices like hand washing is a pre-requisite for morbidity and mortality rate reduction, especially among under five years old children in developing countries. To reduce the incidence and prevalence of diarrhoeal diseases, improvements in the availability, quantity, and quality of water, improved sanitation, and general personal and environmental hygiene are required. The majority of people in developing countries do not have access to piped drinking water and must carry; transport and store water within their homes and in the process the quality of water may
Student Rebuilders: The world water crisis has many complex parts that are all related: drinking water scarcity, food insecurity, declining ocean health, gender inequality and climate change-just to name a few. In this blog post, Water Wisdom is focusing on the Sanitation Crisis. Like drinking water, access to sanitation facilities is recognized as a basic human right, yet billions of people continue to live without it, contributing to the spread of disease and even death. Many sanitation activists feel that drinking water gets all the glory, while sanitation remains taboo; but they are both equally essential for a safe and healthy community. Jack Sim, Founder of the World Toilet Organization wants to make toilets as cool as cell phones - read more below to see how his solutions can impact the problem.. There are many things we can choose not to do but we cannot choose not to go to the toilet.. Yet about 40% of all human beings still do not have a proper toilet.. Were at the 11th hour of the ...
Preamble We, the Ministers and Heads of Delegations responsible for sanitation and hygiene in Africa, together with senior civil servants, academics, civil society, development partners and the private sector at the 4thAfrican Conference on Sanitation and Hygiene (AfricaSan), convened by the Government of Senegal with support from the African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) in Dakar, Senegal, May 25-27, 2015: Recognizing that while an estimated 133 million people living in Africa gained improved sanitation since 1990, the level of progress has not kept pace with demographic change; many countries do not have adequate high-level leadership, financial and human resources to implement existing policies, fail to tackle equity, do not build, manage or maintain sanitation systems and services, or create the large-scale hygiene behaviour change; Mindful that an estimated 61% of people living in Africa do not have access to improved sanitation and that 21% still defecate in the open; Noting that ...
Analyzing the survey results, Camila Gadotti, Professional Service Account Representative for 3M Food Safety Department was surprised there were still a proportion of respondents (though small) who didnt have a cleaning and sanitation program in place. This is such an important part of food safety and quality, and yet we still have some people who dont have a program in place. Also majority of people still rely on visual check, which is not a good system for a sanitation program.. Since respondents could check more than one choice for which method they used, a lot of people did visual check in conjunction with other microbial or ATP swab testing. Of these methods, Gadotti pointed out that microbial testing, given that it could take 24 to 48 hours to get results, would be a slow process. In this time frame, the product could have been sold in the market. So while the test results could still be used for corrective steps to improve sanitation, its not the ideal choice for testing.. Instead, ...
The Millennium Development Goals (MDG) provide clear targets by 2015 and it turns out that sanitation is by far the largest of all the MDG targets affecting about 40% of the global population. The objective of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) is to show how Sustainable Sanitation projects should be planned with participation of stakeholders through capacity development activities. Developing the capacity of societies to collaboratively learn through change and uncertainty is fundamental for sustainability science. The aim of this contribution it is to analyze the role of graph database management (GDM) for improve capacity development and knowledge building in the Sustainable Sanitation framework. We provide a theoretical model with four features of network research: link analysis, social network, pattern recognition and keyword search that we illustrate with some examples. Network research allows us to observe how the information in Sustainable Sanitation is scattered properly ...
This Progress on Drinking Water and Sanitation reports on access to drinking-water and sanitation worldwide and on progress towards related targets under Millennium Development Goal 7 to halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. The estimates presented in the 2013 report describe the situation as of end-2011. This 2013 update presents country and regional estimates for the year 2011 and global trends in sanitation, open defecation and access to drinking-water for the period 1990-2011. It also introduces the process of formulating proposals for post-2015 targets and corresponding indicators for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH ...
Sanitation has received little attention from law and policy makers, and implementers for a long time although it was not completely outside the purview of laws and policies in India. The past couple of decades have witnessed a significant change in the manner in which sanitation is viewed, both at the national and international levels. While this change is accompanied by a growing interest among academics and practitioners in the policy perspectives on sanitation, the enquiry into its legal dimensions has lagged behind considerably. This book is the first comprehensive study of the right to sanitation and its multiple dimensions with a special emphasis on India. It analyses the right in terms of its narrow understanding focusing on toilets and various broader components, such as its gender, social, environmental dimensions, as well as specific issues such as manual scavenging and the conditions of work of sanitation workers.

My mother believed you got trachoma from crying, said Neter Nadew, a 36-year-old Ethiopian mother of four who suffers as her mother did from trachoma, a bacterial eye disease that can lead to blindness. Nadews mother was forced to pluck out her eyelashes to prevent the onset of blindness in the later stages of the disease. Today, thanks to the Carter Centers Trachoma Control Program, Nadew knows face washing and good environmental sanitation prevent trachoma.. The leading cause of preventable blindness in the world, trachoma is found in communities with limited access to medical care, health education, and environmental sanitation. Because of their traditional role as caregivers, women are particularly vulnerable to this painful disease. Through their continual close contact with young children, who form the primary pool of infection, mothers are exposed to the repeated infection that can lead to severe trachoma and blindness. Three out of four people blinded by trachoma in Ethiopia are ...

The result is a disorganized urban fabric, where water and sanitation networks are almost non-existent. Its disadvantaged population thus lives in a harmful environment, where solid waste mixes with liquid waste, on the doorstep. The health risks are significant: lack of sanitation is the main cause of diarrhoeal diseases.. This is why the Djibouti National Water and Sanitation Office has embarked on a major sanitation program. Its objective: to set up a wastewater collection system, up to the treatment plant. To build this network, ONEAD has received financial support of € 12M from the European Union, whose management has been delegated to AFD.. ©AFD2020. ...

factor analysis were employed for data analysis. The result shows that the majority of the households interviewed are adults with secondary school certificate. The major available water supply and sanitation facilities in the study area are boreholes and an open pit latrine. About 50.8% and 48.1% of the households gained access to improved water and sanitation respectively in the study area. Badagry and Ewekoro recorded the highest access for improved water and sanitation respectively. Only 8% of the households gained access to safe water supply in the study area. The sanitary condition in the study area is poor. The chi-square shows a significant relationship between the dependent variables (water sources/types of toilet facilities) and independent variable (marital status, age, and income) at p,0.01. Factor analysis explained 68.86% of the total ...
As a city of 8 million people became a city of 8.5 million, it only took a glance skyward at any given time to note the booming population in every borough, with tall towers and boutique buildings springing up like weeds in formerly less-bustling neighborhoods. Its just as noticeable closer to the ground as an exploding populations trash threatens to reach skyscraper proportions, too, taxing the citys sanitation infrastructure. From street cleaning to curbside sanitation pickup to volunteer adopt-a-basket efforts in tourist zones and parks, the job of keeping the city clean is getting out of hand, the New York Times reports. Yet the garbage keeps growing. The citys sanitation department spent $58.2 million last year to keep the streets clean, up from $49.5 million the previous year, as well as expanding and adding routes, putting more people on duty to empty sidewalk baskets and adding Sunday service; Staten Island got its first street sweeper last year..

Swimming pool sanitation is the process of ensuring healthy conditions in swimming pools, hot tubs, plunge pools, and similar recreational water venues. Proper sanitation is needed to maintain the visual clarity of water and to prevent the transmission of infectious waterborne diseases. Sanitation methods include a water filter to remove pollutants, disinfection to kill infectious microorganisms, swimmer hygiene to minimize the introduction of contaminants into pool water, and regular testing of pool water, including chlorine and pH levels. The World Health Organization has published international guidelines for the safety of swimming pools and similar recreational-water environments, including standards for minimizing microbial and chemical hazards. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also provides information on pool sanitation and water related illnesses for health professionals and the public. The main organizations providing certifications for pool and spa operators ...
The rapid trend towards urbanization in lower- and middle-income countries over the past half-century has significant implications for economic development, health, and the environment. There is an opportunity to understand how decentralized sanitation may affect environmental exposures and childrens health in dense, informal settlements of Sub-Saharan Africa, where pervasive contamination by fecal-associated microorganisms, including several pathogens, exists.. Led jointly by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Georgia Institute of Technology, this project aims to assess the impact of sanitation on a variety of health indicators such as incidence of diarrhea, soil-transmitted helminth infection, and anthropometric measurements, especially among children under five. Researchers from The Water Institute at UNC will design the MapSan Trial, a controlled before-and-after (CBA) study of shared sanitation in urban Maputo, Mozambique. The study evaluates a large-scale, shared ...
Framing scholarship on human rights accountability through treaty bodies, this article examines the water and sanitation content of state human rights reporting to the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. In this novel application of analytic coding methods to state human rights reports, the authors trace the relationship between human rights advancements on water and sanitation and treaty body monitoring of water and sanitation systems. These results raise an imperative for universal human rights indicators on the rights to water and sanitation, providing an empirical basis to develop universal indicators that would streamline reporting to human rights treaty bodies, facilitate monitoring of state reports, and ensure accountability for human rights implementation.. ...
The article aimed to find the causes of microbial contamination of drinking water source, by exploring the influencing factors of water on the incidence of diarrhea in children. Random stratified-cluster sampling was used to study Li and Han communities of rural Lingshui County with regards to water quality and environmental sanitation. Water samples were evaluated for microbial contamination using drinking water standard (GB5750 China, WHO Guidelines 4th). Data was compared between ethnic groups. Li communities had more contamination than Han. The correlation between the frequency of diarrhea among children and the presence of microorganisms in the water was positive, for both total coliforms and Escherichia coli (E. coli). Regression analysis showed the substandard risk factors of total coliforms for source water were type of water supply (OR = 3.508) and garbage disposal methods (OR = 2.430). For E. coli, risk factors included the source of water supply (OR = 2.417); depth of wells (OR = ...
Schistosomiasis is caused by infection with trematodes S. mansoni, S. mekongi, S.japonicum and S. intercalatum. Urinary Schistosomiasis is caused by infection with S.haematobium.. Schistosomiasis is known to be highly endemic across Tanzania with published data suggesting that all regions have some level of infection. This can range from 12.7% to 87.6% for schistosomiasis. Urine questionnaire mapping for S. haematobium has been conducted in every school for the entire country in addition to limited mapping by stool examination for S. mansoni prevalence around the Lake Victoria regions.. The major contributory factors to such high levels of infection are limited access to safe water and lack of or poor environmental sanitation. Individuals are therefore continually exposed to the parasites and re-infection levels are high.. The consequences of these diseases globally are well documented, but particularly within Tanzania which has been a major focus for research into the transmission dynamics and ...

Water and sanitation interventions in developing countries have historically been difficult to evaluate. We conducted a seroepidemiologic study with the following goals: 1) to determine the feasibility of using antibody markers as indicators of waterborne pathogen infection in the evaluation of water and sanitation intervention projects; 2) to characterize the epidemiology of waterborne diarrheal infections in rural Guatemala, and 3) to measure the age-specific prevalence of antibodies to waterborne pathogens. Between September and December 1999, all children 6-36 months of age in 10 study villages were invited to participate. We collected sufficient serum from 522 of 590 eligible children, and divided them into six-month age groups for analysis (6-12, 13-18, 19-24, 25-30, and 31-36 months). The prevalence of antibodies was lowest in children 6-12 months old compared with the four older age groups for the following pathogens: enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (48%, 81%, 80%, 77%, and 83%), Norwalk virus

The Lancet piece dealt with the primacy of water and sanitation in global development, and drew attention to the likelihood that the world will fail to meet the MDG on sanitation. It also highlighted the regional disparities which are masked by global progress on the water MDG (viz. progress in India and China masking a lack of such progress in subSaharan Africa). Also of note in the one page editorial was the continued/continuing lack of prioritization of water and sanitation in budgets throughout the developing world ...

Impact on disease burden due to inadequate and unsafe water, lack of sanitation and poor hygiene behaviour is a complex issue [1]. The occurrence and severity of Hygiene related outbreaks in endemic areas is greatly enhanced by human behaviour with regards the practice of healthy hygiene [2-4]. Poor hygiene behaviour is a major problem in developing countries [5]. Hygiene and sanitation related Diseases are a huge burden in developing countries; Causing many people to fall ill even to die [2], Schools have repeatedly been implicated in the spread of gastrointestinal disease, High among primary school going children [5-9].. Improvements in hygiene behaviour are the most important barrier to many infectious diseases, because with safe behaviour and appropriate facilities, people reduce their risk of becoming exposed to diseases [1-5]. A study conducted by FEACHEM R. G stated that hygiene behaviour influences the pattern of diarrhoeal spread. Water handling, latrine utilization behaviour, and ...
The cost of villagers installing their own basic latrine is on average CFA 1,000 ($ 20). The latrine lasts two to five years, so is a good investment. Diabous been sensitized on the cost of not installing latrines. If a child gets sick from a disease related to poor sanitation, they dont go to school, the mother doesnt go to work in the field to look after the child, and they all go to hospital which is an expense in itself.. A year earlier a community liaison health worker came to the village through the GSF programme to explain to villagers why construction of latrines and hand washing are important. Emphasis is placed on giving responsibility to the village - they ask for the intervention through a demand-based approach. Community participation is both in terms of personal involvement (digging their latrines) and financial involvement (financing their latrines). The long term use of the latrines and the hand washing station is assessed by the programme organizers.. In Senegal Terranga ...
Water. It is vital to our existence. It sustains and renews life. But if its contaminated, water brings disease and even death.. Many people living in developing nations, especially in rural regions, simply dont know the dangers of unclean water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene. They dont know that the water they drink to stay alive hides illnesses that can kill.. Approximately 780 million people in the world do not have access to an improved water source. Its estimated that 801,000 children under the age of five die from water-borne illness each year. Thats nearly 2,200 little ones dying each day from preventable diseases.(1). We believe the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved within our lifetimes. We are working to provide clean water and sanitation to every man, woman, and child in every Ethiopian community where MJAA works, especially among the displaced Jewish community often found in some of the hardest to reach places..

Key informants and development agents indicated various site specific challenges with watershed management activities. The key informant in Bucha kebele explained that soil is too hard to dig and it is difficult to achieve the work norm stated in Work norm and supply of tools. In the lower watershed of this kebele, planting grass on soil bunds/fanya juu is poorly practiced compared to other parts of the micro-watershed, which may be due to the large land area per household, as the areas population density appears to be low. In contrary, in many areas land shortage challenges the size of channel and embankments. In various kebeles, farmers reduced conservation structure embankment widths in order to have more land for crops. This resulted in many soil and water conservation structures being overtopped by flooding.. Sustaining community participation in structure construction and management is other challenge in Abela Faracho and Abela Sifa kebeles. Participant numbers are small because it is a ...

The three studies for the development of the strategy were not realized, mainly due to the security situation. Of the 4,300 hectares of plantations which were planned at appraisal, only 307 hectares were planted by the end of the project. The pilot logging operation was not implemented due to the security situation. Very limited progress was made in the adaptive research program due to the security situation, the loan portion financing watershed management was canceled in 1996. Time-consuming government procurement procedures slowed implementation. The failure by the General Directorate of Forestry to recruit an economist principal as head of the project management team hampered implementation. M&E was critical for a pilot project. However the lack of consultants and, again, the security situation made M&E very difficult. For a long period, Bank supervision missions were carried out from outside the country. ...

Thursday, August 13, 2015. On a stormy day in Dakar, Tina Gomis, a local woman in Sicap Mbao, laughs at the idea of selling her own excrement to the government. But this may soon become a reality in a city with a reputation for terrible waste management.. A pioneering SMS service and waste treatment system is dramatically bringing down sanitation costs in Senegals capital and, if successful, may even lead to customers making a small profit from their ordure instead of paying someone to take it away.. We want to turn poo into gold; its not waste, but a raw material, says Mbaye Mbeguere, from the Senegal National Sanitation Utility (ONAS).. Its a far cry from the current situation where, according to ONAS, 80% of people in Dakar use pit latrines. But the high costs fixed by the pit emptiers association has driven many to seek cheaper alternatives, often at the expense of the environment and their own health.. When the pits get full, people dig makeshift holes around their house to transfer ...

This 5.5 x 9 (13.97 x 13.97 cm), 64-page pamphlet written by Joel Roberts recounts the 1849 cholera epidemic in Sandusky. The last five pages of the diary list people who died in the epidemic. Cholera was a major threat in the 19th century. Due to poor sanitation and ignorance of the causes of disease, Sandusky suffered several cholera outbreaks in the 1840s and 1850s. The most devastating outbreak occurred in the summer of 1849, when 400 people died and many more fled the city in fear. The citys population before the outbreak was about 5,000; it is estimated that fewer than 1,000 remained in the city during the cholera. The 1882 History of Sandusky County reported that medical men [were] taxed to their utmost to stem the tide of disease and death. The devastation caused by cholera and other epidemics helped to inspire improvements in medical care, research, and sanitation practices such as water treatment ...

The single pit is one of the most widely used sanitation technologies. Excreta, along with anal cleansing materials (water or solids) are deposited into a pit. Lining the pit prevents it from collapsing and provides support to the superstructure. A single pit latrine consists of a toilet superstructures and a single pit to be filled up, emptied and filled up again. To improve pit latrines, aeration or an additional pit can be added (see single VIP, double VIP or double pit latrine).
