Students will practice talking about their daily routines and hygiene. Students will also practice asking and answering questions.
Aimed at healthcare practitioners, this learning object describes why hand hygiene is so important in a healthcare setting, then uses video clips to demonstrate correct, and incorrect, hand washing techniques.
The design team of BIOE 260: Introduction to Global Health Issues, created a health-science curriculum that focuses on the needs of a primary school in Terrier Rouge, Haiti. The activities are designed to be relevant to local health issues, use locally available resources, maintain cultural sensitivity, and foster participation and comprehension. The activities cover a range of lessons including water purification, the importance of hand washing, and general anatomy of the human body. The program will culminate in a showcase where the students can present what they have learned to their families. Although these activities were designed for a specific group of students, the lessons could easily be adapted for a different community. Guidance and support were provided by Dr. Rebecca Richards-Kortum, Monica Dyer, Janet Wheeler, Soizic Bonnet, Dan Erchick, Rose Thelus, Allison Lipper, and Yvette Mirabal.
This session presents an overview of the association between water, sanitation, hygiene and human health. A particular focus upon transmission and treatment of diarrhea disease among small children. Other diseases given particular priority in the presentation include Hepatitis A and E viruses and bacteria that cause cholera or typhoid fever. Likewise, the importance of water-washed diseases, especially infectious skin and eye diseases, such as scabies and trachoma are presented. The preventive actions needed to reduce the burden of the various infectious diseases associated with water, sanitation and hygiene will be introduced.

This is an introduction to the fascinated multidisciplinary world of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). An area relevant due to the 1,5 million people annually dying of WASH-related disease, but also highly relevant during any emergency, whether it is a cholera outbreak in the slums of Dhaka Bangladesh, drought and water shortage in Kenya or hygiene-related virus outbreaks anywhere on the globe. The course ties theories of engineering, anthropology, public health, epidemiology, microbiology, disaster management, etc. with practical exercises to provide the student with the multifaceted background knowledge needed to be able to respond in an emergency actively. The course Water and sanitation in Emergencies started as a response to the Tsunami in 2004 and is now an independent elective course under the world-renowned Master of Disaster Management program, http://www.mdma.ku.dk, at University of Copenhagen.

The purpose of this lesson, from Science NetLinks, is to identify how germs are spread, the diseases they can cause, and how hand washing can help prevent the spread of germs. In this lesson, students will learn about some of the health habits that are essential for maintaining good health.- Students will engage in both online and hands on activities related to the topic of germs. Students will learn that germs cause some, but not all diseases.- They will also learn the importance of hand washing for preventing the spread of germs, and thereby, the spread of disease.
This four-part series on water and sanitation leads with an article by Jamie Bartram and Sandy Cairncross who argue that the massive burden of ill health associated with poor hygiene, sanitation and water supply demands more attention from policymakers. In the second article, Paul Hunter et al. focus on water supply and argue that more effort is needed to improve access to safe and sustainable water supplies. David Trouba et al. discuss the importance of improved sanitation to health and the role that the health sector can play in its advocacy in the third article. And in the final article, Sandy Cairncross et al. outline what needs to be done to make significant progress in providing more and better hygiene, sanitation and water for all. They argue the active involvement of health professionals in hygiene, sanitation and water supply is crucial to accelerating and consolidating progress for health.
