This work will develop a modelling approach that, if demonstrated to generate reliable predictions, can support context-specific decision-making around the most cost-effective interventions to reduce disease burden due to faecal pathogens in low-income urban contexts.
- This project will build on a previous concept study commissioned by the Urban Sanitation Research Initiative that developed a possible framework for modelling faecal pathogen flows:
