Overview for Water Borne Diseases in India: Environmental Health and Policy Perspectives

Water-borne diseases are the major contributing factors of morbidity and mortality in the developing world. Despite technological innovations with regard to development of new drugs, diagnostic techniques, vaccines and several policy formulations, there is little evidence of reduction of disease burden. In this book, the authors argue that the lack of environment health perspective, domination of biological connotation along with the absence of integration and convergence of knowledge in policy formulation are largely responsible for the present state of affair. The book provides the evidence based insights into the critical issues of occurrence of both, infectious and non-infectious water-borne diseases.

  • Relevant in South Asian context

    (More than year ago) By, Prof M Ahmed

    The issues are relevant in south Asian context, particularly with Bangladesh. Must reading for all public health researchers. Expected more information on other water borne diseases in subsequent editions.
