7 August 2013: What is public about public health? Evidence from three Indian sanitation studies

Jeffrey S. Hammer
NCAER and Princeton University

Why is good quality health care so hard to deliver? That environmental conditions are major determinants of health is fairly well established worldwide. This seminar will present the results of three research projects that make the case for treating sanitation as an extremely high priority for Indian policymakers if they wish to attain their stated goal of better health for the Indian rural and urban public. The research to be presented will include:

1) an interstate comparison of sanitation and curative care;
2) a randomized control trial of the Total Sanitation Campaign in rural Maharashtra; and
3) preliminary results of a study of urban infrastructure and health in Delhi’s slums
