Population Density, Poor Sanitation, and Enteric Infections in Nueva Santa Rosa, Guatemala

Poor sanitation could pose greater risk for enteric pathogen transmission at higher human population densities because of greater potential for pathogens to infect new hosts through environmentally mediated and person-to-person transmission. We hypothesized that incidence and prevalence of diarrhea, enteric protozoans, and soil-transmitted helminth infections would be higher in high-population-density areas compared with low-population density areas, and that poor sanitation would pose greater risk for these enteric infections at high density compared with low density.

Evaluating Sustained Adoption of LPG stoves in Guatemala

Research Overview

This project will evaluate perceptions and sustained use of liquid petroleum gas (LPG) stoves distributed through GenteGas, an 18-month pilot study funded by Grand Challenges Canada in June 2014. The GenteGas pilot uses a market-based approach to distribute affordable LPG stoves to low-income households in peri-urban Alontenango, Guatemala. GenteGas trains local women entrepreneurs to distribute LPG stoves and tanks and to engage their communities around LPG stove use and safety.
