This chapter argues that water, sanitation, and hygiene as well as TB, HIV, malaria, and other major communicable diseases can be controlled with cost-effective interventions. Effective control depends on knowledge of the epidemiology and control interventions as well as knowledge of the local situation. Commonly, a combination of preventive and treatment interventions is needed.

Keywords:   public health, disease control, communicable disease, water, sanitation, HIV, sexually transmitted disease
