- Re: How much evidence do we have that mass deworming of children really has much of an impact? - by: joeturner July 28, 2015Marijn Zandee wrote: Dear colleagues, That the review comes to the conclusion that the research into the effect of de-worming does not proof that mass de-worming is useful, I can understand.

This and the water "statistics" page were not intended to be rigorous academic studies. Rather they are a way to pull other studies (rigorous or not) together to give snapshots of a rather large problem. We add information when we come across it. We have begun talking to a couple of universit […]

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.
