Open Square Foundation

Measuring the sustainability and impacts of water, sanitation, and hygiene implementation programs enables policymakers, donors, and practitioners to make informed decisions on intervention priorities.

Together with researchers at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health and Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research Institute in Chennai, India, we conducted an epidemiological evaluation of the long-term health and socioeconomic impacts of a water, sanitation, and hygiene intervention among rural communities of Tamil Nadu state in Southern India. Our evaluation demonstrates rigorous observational methods for assessing non-randomized community interventions.
