Assessing public health risks from unsafe fecal sludge management in poor urban neighborhoods: What does SaniPath tell us about exposure to fecal contamination in 12 neighborhoods in 3 cities?

CL Moe
22nd Annual SuSanA Meeting (August 2016)

This presentation, given by Dr. Christine Moe, compared the latest results of the SaniPath Study from three different study sites: Accra, Ghana; Vellore, India; and Maputo, Mozambique and discussed the reliability of the SaniPath Tool data. The presentation was given at the 22nd Annual SuSanA meeting in Stockholm. SuSanA is “an open international alliance” bringing together individuals who are interested in sustainable sanitation, and who are “dedicated to understanding viable and sustainable sanitation solutions.”

How can SaniPath build on the SFD’s?

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.
