Evaluation of an on-site sanitation intervention against childhood diarrhea and acute respiratory infection 1 to 3.5 years after implementation: Extended follow-up of a cluster-randomized controlled trial in rural Bangladesh

PLOS MEDICINE, 19(8).

Contributors: A. Ercumen n

Ed(s): Z. Bhutta

MeSH headings : Animals; Bangladesh / epidemiology; Diarrhea / epidemiology; Diarrhea / prevention & control; Follow-Up Studies; Hand Disinfection; Humans; Respiratory Tract Infections / epidemiology; Respiratory Tract Infections / prevention & control; Rural Population; Sanitation / methods
TL;DR: The observed effect of the WASH Benefits Bangladesh sanitation intervention on diarrhea in children appeared to be sustained for at least 3.5 years after implementation, suggesting that improving on-site latrine quality can deliver health benefits when latrine use practices are in place.

Influence of community-level sanitation coverage and population density on environmental fecal contamination and child health in a longitudinal cohort in rural Bangladesh

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HYGIENE AND ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH, 245.

By: J. Contreras n, M. Islam*, A. Mertens*, A. Pickering*, L. Kwong*, B. Arnold*, J. Benjamin-Chung*, A. Hubbard* ...

Contributors: A. Ercumen n

author keywords: Sanitation coverage; Latrine coverage; Fecal contamination; Diarrheal disease; WASH
MeSH headings : Bangladesh / epidemiology; Child; Child Health; Diarrhea / epidemiology; Diarrhea / prevention & control; Escherichia coli; Feces; Humans; Population Density; Rural Population; Sanitation; Toilet Facilities
TL;DR: At higher population densities, community latrine coverage was associated with larger reductions in E. coli on child and caregiver hands and prevalence of diarrheal disease, and effects were similar but less pronounced at 100 m. (via Semantic Scholar)

Longitudinal Effects of a Sanitation Intervention on Environmental Fecal Contamination in a Cluster-Randomized Controlled Trial in Rural Bangladesh

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY, 55(12), 8169–8179.

By: J. Contreras n, M. Islam*, A. Mertens*, A. Pickering*, L. Kwong*, B. Arnold*, J. Benjamin-Chung*, A. Hubbard* ...

author keywords: latrine; potty; child feces management; WASH; fecal indicator bacteria; E. coli; disease transmission pathways; environmental sampling
MeSH headings : Animals; Bangladesh; Child; Escherichia coli; Feces; Humans; Rural Population; Sanitation; Toilet Facilities
TL;DR: The findings support a growing consensus that on-site latrines are insufficient to prevent fecal contamination in the rural household environment and support the WASH Benefits Bangladesh randomized controlled trial. (via Semantic Scholar)
