Do not defecate outdoors. Dispose of diapers properly.Slide 26: Wash hands with soap and water before handling food. When traveling to countries where sanitation and hygiene are poor, avoid water or food that may be contaminated. Wash, peel or cook all raw vegetables and fruits before eating.A Simple Rule of Thumb: A Simple Rule of Thumb "Boil it, cook it, peel it, or forget it"The Future: The Future Even if by the year 2015 the proportion of people who are unable to reach or to afford safe drinking water is halved, between 34 and 76 million people, mostly children, will die from preventable water-borne diseasesMore Challenges: More Challenges Developed countries and chlorine-resistant microbes Climate Changes Economic barriers for developing countries to sanitize large amounts of waterThe Answer: The Answer Unmet human needs for water Education Commitment to the elimination of specific diseases ResearchClimate Change: Climate Change Water scarcity compromises hygiene Reduced water pressure increases risk of back siphoning of contaminated water Floods causing breaching of barriers between sewage and water systemsSlide 33: Warming/cooling changes distribution of pathogens and vectors Increased UV exposure resulting in increased susceptability to disease Increased mutation rates with unpredictable effects on ecosystems (pathogen development)- DHRUVA : - DHRUVA THE END You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
