This paper reviews the application of epidemiological understanding of diarrhoeal disease to interventions in water and sanitation.
Over the past 20 years, great efforts have been made to elucidate the relationships between water supply, sanitation and diarrhoeal disease.
At the outset, it was hoped that improved understanding of these relations could provide a rational framework for the planning of public health engineering interventions.
This paper also reviews historical and recent perceptions of water, sanitation, and diarrhoeal disease, and summarizes progress to date.
