Family latrines and paediatric shigellosis in rural Bangladesh benefit or risk ?
The potential benefits of installing excreta disposal facilities on the burden of paediatric diarrhoea in less-developed settings remain controversial.
We conducted a longitudinal study to evaluate whether family latrines are associated with interruption of the transmission of shigellosis to younger children in rural Bangladesh.
We prospectively studied 1529 children under 5 years of age exposed to index cases of Shigella dysentery.
In all 219 children with culture-proven shigellosis detected during 1 month of follow-up were compared with 1310 control children who did not develop shigellosis or Shigella-negative dysentery.
