The use of soap and water in two bangladeshi communities : implications for the transmission of diarrhea.
Symposium on invasive diarrheas, shigellosis, and dysentery. Bangkok (THA), 1988-12-07.
Efforts to reduce the incidence of diarrheal infections in which enteropathogens are endemic have focused on education about the importance of hand washing to interrupt transmission of such organisms.
Since the effectiveness of health education depends on an understanding of the recipients' ideas and customs, we studied perceptions of cleanliness and the role of soap and hand washing in two poor Bangladeshi communities, one rural and one urban.
