Applications Due:

Monday, April 29, 2013, 5:00pm (EST)

The purpose

“Is to fund research involving the secondary analysis of data that will more fully characterize the relative health impact (i.e., diarrheal diseases, STH infections, and anthropometric measures in children) of sanitation coverage in areas marked by high population densities compared to those with lower population densities.”

Focus of the Research

“The proposed research should focus on how varying degrees of access to basic sanitation and household-level sanitation affect the risk of diarrheal diseases, STH infections, and/oranthropometric measures among children living in high-density, low-income settlements compared to lower density, low-income areas. The proposed research should characterize location-specific relationships, which may then be used for investment decisions in the same or similar locations.”

Research Goals and Objectives

“The goal of this research is to help inform how investments in basic sanitation may differentiallyaffect the health of children living in dense slum settlements, for example in sub-Saharan Africa…where urban sanitation coverage remains very low and is actually decreasing with accelerating urban growth.” source pdf below
