Enteric infections are common during the first years of life in low-income countries and contribute to growth faltering and long-term impairment of health and development. Water quality, sanitation, hand washing, and nutritional interventions can independently reduce enteric infections and growth faltering. Little evidence directly compares the effects of these individual and combined interventions on diarrhea and growth when delivered to infants and young children. The objective of the WASH benefits study is to help fill this knowledge gap. [authors abstract]
