School WASH and diarrheal disease : can improving school-based WASH conditions reduce diarrheal disease among students?

Nearly 1.3 million children under age five die each year from diarrheal diseases due to unsafe drinking water. Although there are numerous studies of diarrhea-related mortality for children under age five, little is known about the burden and implications of diarrheal disease for school-aged children. The SWASH+ Project conducted a cluster-randomized trial to assess the impact of a school-based water supply, water quality, sanitation, and hygiene promotion intervention on diarrheal disease among primary school pupils.

The SWASH+ Project conducted a cluster-randomized trial to assess the impact of a school-based water supply, water quality, sanitation, and hygiene promotion intervention on diarrheal disease among primary school pupils.
