Diarrhea Tracking in Emergencies

Why should WASH agencies undertake something that is traditionally a health sector activity?

  • Data can be used to compliment and cross-check existing surveillance data

  • To provide informational support to areas that are under-served by existing surveillance systems

  • Real-time early warning system for AWD/ Cholera outbreaks in high risk areas

  • To be used in for targeting and messaging for hygiene promotion programming

  • WASH partners tend to have large outreach teams already present in intervention areas, making data collection a simple part of outreach work

-To be used as impact indicators in project evaluation
