Interpreting the Global Enteric Multicenter Study (GEMS) findings on sanitation, hygiene, and diarrhea

In this Perspective on the GEMS study by Kelly Baker and colleagues, Jonny Crocker and Jamie Bartram consider the implications of associations found and not found between diarrheal disease and sanitation and hygiene. The GEMS study presents the best dataset yet on diarrhoeal disease associated with sanitation and hygiene. It provides compelling evidence on sanitation and hygiene risk factors for moderate-to-severe diarrhea (MSD) and variability in that risk.

Abstract

In this Perspective on the GEMS study by Kelly Baker and colleagues, Jonny Crocker and Jamie Bartram consider the implications of associations found and not found between diarrheal disease and sanitation and hygiene. The GEMS study presents the best dataset yet on diarrhoeal disease associated with sanitation and hygiene. It provides compelling evidence on sanitation and hygiene risk factors for moderate-to-severe diarrhea (MSD) and variability in that risk.
