Interlacing Water and Human Health: Case Studies from South Asia

Anjal Prakash (Editor) Saravanan V.S. (Editor) Jayati Chourey (Editor) Water in South Asia

The interlacing of water and health exists wherever human health is adversely affected, directly or indirectly, by changes in the quality and quantity of water. Analyzing the various discourses on the subject, this volume revolves around the central question: What are the linkages between water and health in South Asia? The book looks at the linkage in an integrated manner, and is not based on the 'absence of disease' syndrome. The curative, preventive, and adaptive aspects of the public-health problem have also been discussed. Among other areas, it deals with water and health with reference to water supply, sanitation, water pollution, natural disasters, urbanization, and industrialization. Enriched with latest research and case studies from different South Asian countries, the book calls for a comprehensive understanding of water and health issues in the region.
