Rural Health and Development At the Food Water Nexus: Kenya

Team Members: 

This project will explore water-nutrition-health interconnections and will serve as a stepping stone toward the development of theoretical and experimental paradigms linking water, agriculture, and health. The broad goals of the project are 1) to investigate the interactions between household productive and domestic water use, nutritional outcomes, and infectious disease, and 2) to identify local interventions and policy responses that are likely to improve overall health outcomes. More specifically, the project will identify the extent which, and potential causal mechanisms by which, access to domestic and productive water supplies and associated nutritional benefits affect the progression of both HIV and TB among adults living in rural African households.
