- Re: Software to identify and quantify pathogenic helminth eggs (University Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico) - by: TeamWTR November 27, 2014Dear Elisabeth Actually, one person can be infected with more than one species, although it is not common since many species are endemic of certain areas, but the number in the table refers to number of people infected, so a person infected with more than one species would still count as one.

- Re: Some changes to the forum categories - by: F H Mughal November 27, 2014Dear Elisabeth, Just a quick response.... Where would the following fit in? Human right to sanitation Policy Innovation in sanitation Political commitments (like political willingness) Monitoring and evaluation Instead of mindsets and attitudes, can we rephrase it as attitudes and behaviour change? Mindset seems a narrow term. These headings should be broad […]
- Re: Some changes to the forum categories - by: KimAndersson November 27, 2014Dear Elisabeth and all, I very much like the set of new categories and think that they are relevant and appropriate.

- Re: About chlorine solution preparation - by: JKMakowka November 27, 2014Sometimes I think we need a proper WASH message board again, as questions like this are quite far off the normal spectrum for SuSanA... I assume the background of your question is preparing (medical) cleaning solutions from locally available bleach powder? Putting "preparing bleach solution" into google gave me the attached document as the first hi […]

While on a mission in Bangladesh I visited a tea stall where I saw a lot of men getting their daily cup of tea. Tea stalls are a common phenomenon in Bangladesh, it is a place where people gather not just for tea, but to hang out and talk freely about whatever is important to them. Male field workers in the BRAC WASH programme have started visiting these stalls to discuss sanitation and hygiene practices.
Forum theatres are one of WaterAid’s new approaches of improving hygiene in Bangladesh by focusing on men. See below photos of a pilot show in Jogdol bazaar, Magura in west Bangladesh.
