Health impacts of WASH & IAP interventions

Issue 40 January 27, 2012 | Year in Review – Health Impacts of WASH and IAP Interventions from 2011

This WASHplus Weekly issue contains nine 2011 studies on the health impacts of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) interventions and seven 2011 studies on the health impacts of interventions to prevent or reduce indoor air pollution.

One WASH study (Water and Sanitation Program) calculates the economic costs to five East Asia countries due to losses related to poor sanitation.

On the IAP side, a study (Dix-Cooper) investigated whether early life chronic exposure to wood smoke is associated with children’s neurodevelopmental and behavioral performance. This seems to be the first study of its kind.
