Linking Water, Sanitation, and Health Sector
ONE, October 2009
This blog summarizes and links to a paper recently published by the Center for Strategies and International Studies (CSIS) Global Health Policy Center: "Enhancing U.S. Leadership on Drinking Water and Sanitation -- Opportunities within Global Health Programs." The author of the report, Katherine E. Bliss, makes the argument that water and sanitation issues need to be included in health sector discussions. Water-borne diseases like diarrhea account for a large percentage of the global disease burden.
