Innovation Description

Adequate water supply is a public health intervention aimed at preventing diarrhoeal diseases in relief operations. Children under the age of 5 years and other vulnerable populations are most at risk from preventable enteric infections, including diarrheal diseases, which are associated with environmental enteropathy and stunting. These are likely one of the major contributors to the overall morbidity and mortality rates during a humanitarian crisis [1,2].
