General district meeting : the importance of safe water, sanitation and hygiene for school and community health

In January - April 2007, Great Lakes University of Kisumu (GLUK) and Emory University collected rigorous baseline data from 185 primary school-communities in divisions within Suba, Rachuonyo, Kisumu and Nyando as part of the SWASH+ program. The baseline provides information on over 10,000 school aged children in almost 5,000 households. A crosssectional analysis to quantify the effect of household and school water, sanitation and hygiene on diarrhea and absenteeism in school-aged children was conducted. While this data collection was done to establish a baseline for measuring the efficacy of the SWASH+ program, it points to the more general impact of access to water and sanitation and hygiene promotion on child health and educational performance.

A crosssectional analysis to quantify the effect of household and school water, sanitation and hygiene on diarrhea and absenteeism in school-aged children was conducted. While this data collection was done to establish a baseline for measuring the efficacy of the SWASH+ program, it points to the more general impact of access to water and sanitation and hygiene promotion on child health and educational performance.
