The authoritative guide to water and sanitation related diseases, with many revised, updated and new chapters, accompanies the First Edition

Augmenting authoritativeinterdisciplinary coverage in the first edition, this new edition of Water and Sanitation Related Diseases and the Changing Environmentexpands upon the significance of the changing environment to disease vectors, food systems and nutrition, and population, and the importance of ecosystem health to human health.  Many chapters stand as they are in first edition to which readers are referred, and which are not included in this volume.

The books were written by 75 experts from the fields of climate change, environmental engineering, environmental health, epidemiology, food and agriculture, global health, medicine, medical anthropology, nutrition, population, and public health. The authors discuss international conditions responsible for diseases that result from a lack of safe water and sanitation including pollutants and other interconnected environmental factors. The authors discuss the pathogens, vectors, and their biology, morbidity and mortality that result from a lack of safe water and sanitation. The text also explores the distribution of these diseases and the conditions that must be met to reduce or eliminate them.  The authors cover access to and maintenance of clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and guidelines for the safe use of wastewater, excreta, and grey water, plus examples of solutions.  This important guide:

  • Offers an understanding of the interconnection among many water–related diseases, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) factors.
  • Provides an appreciation of the concerns and most recent solutions addressed from an international perspective.
  • Provides strategies for securing safe water, sanitation, and hygiene.
  • Is filled with compelling examples of successful interventions and how they were accomplished such as the near eradication of Guinea worm disease.

Written for students and professionals in public health and medicine, chemical and environmental engineering, and international affairs, and for decision–makers and corporate leaders, this new edition of Water and Sanitation Related Diseases and the Changing Environment isa comprehensive resource that complements the first edition.
