Abstract: Poor hygiene practices, lack of adequate sanitation and unsafe or limited water supplies can contribute to the spread of preventable diseases such as cholera or typhoid. Understanding how pathogens (organisms that cause disease) are transmitted allows engineers and public health workers to intervene in appropriate ways to break the transmission cycle, saving lives and reducing unnecessary suffering. This guide examines these crucial issues.
