An Assessment of Water Quality in Lima?s Peri-Urban Neighborhoods

Center for Water and Health researchers are collaborating with International Health colleagues to evaluate water quality in peri-urban slums on the outskirts of Lima. The work focuses on the use of molecular detection methods to identify enteric viruses in the water supply. Initial water sampling found that more than 20 percent of diarrheal illnesses in children are caused by Norovirus.
