UNC Water and Health 2015 (October 2015)

This poster was prepared by Taylor Osborne. The poster presents a sub-study of SaniPath Phase 1 in Accra, Ghana, which assessed the correlation between E. coli and enterococci handrinse concentrations in different urban settings. This poster was presented at the 2015 UNC Water & Health Conference: Where Science Meets Policy. The annual conference is hosted by the UNC Water Institute focuses on “drinking water supply, sanitation, hygiene and water resources in both the developing and developed worlds with a strong public health emphasis.”

David Berendes presented results from the SaniPath study site in Vellore, India that demonstrated how spatial analyses could be a powerful tool for visualizing risk and prioritizing interventions to reduce exposure to fecal contamination in urban environments. The goal of this study was to understand the potential drivers of spatial clustering of risk of exposure to fecal contamination in urban flooding areas.

David Berendes presented this poster at the 2015 UNC Water and Health Conference. The goal of the study was to quantify the contributions of the household- and neighborhood-level context to fecal contamination within urban households in two low-income neighborhoods in Vellore, India. The study examined the association between toilet locations and magnitude of fecal contamination of household surfaces and hands in the context of local sanitation coverage.

Development and Validation of the SaniPath Rapid Assessment Tool: Characterizing a Complex Problem with a Simple Tool

S Raj
3rd International Faecal Sludge Management Conference 2015 (January 2015)

During the FSM3 Conference, Suraja Raj gave a verbal presentation on the development and validation of the SaniPath Tool. Throughout the presentation, Suraja outlined the methods implemented during Phase 1 of the SaniPath Tool in Accra, Ghana, and then later spoke about the deployment of the tool in Vellore, India. Lastly, Suraja revealed upcoming plans to further develop the tool. The purpose of the 3rd International Faecal Sludge Management Conference is to highlight pragmatic and “innovative solutions that can be applied at scale in the world’s rapidly growing cities.”
