Characterizing Determinants of Hand Contamination in Low-Income Neighborhoods of Accra, Ghana

T Osborne, K Robb, J Ampofo, K Baker, D Berendes, C Null, H Reese, Y Wang, H Yakubu, and CL Moe
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.”

Neighborhood Structure, Household Behaviors, and Their Effects on Spatial Clustering of Risk of Exposure to Fecal Contamination in Urban Flood Areas

D Berendes, D Beno, J Clennon, BC Ghale, A Gunasekaran, G Kang, A Kartikeyan, A Kirby, JS Kumar, VR Mohan, S Raj, S Roy, H Yakubu, and C Moe
UNC Water and Health 2015 (October 2015)

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.

Household- and Community-level Sanitation’s Influences of Fecal Contamination and Pathogens in Two Low-Income Urban Settings

D Berendes, D Beno, J Clennon, BC Ghale, A Gunasekaran, G Kang, A Kartikeyan, A Kirby, JS K, VR Mohan, S Raj, S Roy, H Yakubu, and C Moe

UNC Water and Health 2015 (October 2015)

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.
