Water and sanitation
Providing clean water and sanitation
Two billion people lack access to sanitation and/or clean water, leading to chronic gut infections, compromised nutrition, and impaired development. Through a ‘one health’ approach, we are assessing and informing interventions to reduce these exposures.
- Profiling gut pathogens and connections with diet, immunity, and the microbiome
- Impacts of waterborne pollutants and emerging contaminants on health
- Integrated ‘one health’ surveillance of pathogens and antimicrobial resistance
- Informing and assessing built interventions to improve sanitation and water quality
Our work on providing clean water and sanitation contributes towards these United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
