London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine – Invited Talk (2016)

In 2016, David Berendes was invited by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to present a research study, which examined the contribution of a child’s household/neighborhood environments and behaviors associated with exposure to enteric infection risk in an urban slum in India. Both spatial data was collected and behavioral surveys were conducted to assess exposure.

Conference of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (September 2016)

David Berendes presented a poster entitled Risk factors for pediatric enteric infection in an urban slum: Examining the contributions of the household environment, neighborhood geography, and exposure behaviors. The poster presented research, which examined the contribution of a child’s household/neighborhood environments and behaviors associated with exposure to enteric infection risk in an urban slum in India. Both spatial data was collected and behavioral surveys were conducted to assess exposure. This poster was presented at the ISEE conference, an annual scientific conference that “includes plenary sessions, symposia, and poster and oral presentations of accepted abstracts.”

S Raj, D Berendes, CL Moe
SuSanA SFD Exchange Meeting (August 2016)

In this presentation, Suraja Raj discussed how the SaniPath Tool was used in Vellore, India and how SaniPath results could be used to build upon the SFDs. While SFDs show how excreta is or is not contained in a city, the SaniPath Tool focuses on where feces is ending up in the environment and how people are being exposed. Suraja also explains how spatial analyses and clustering was used in Vellore to understand the associations between household toilets and FSM with fecal contamination in urban areas.
