Research was conducted to better understand the disease profile of the study population in the Kaliakoir area of Bangladesh and determine if any of this profile could be attributed to the pollutants found in the local water bodies. The specific objectives were to:
Assess the prevalent health conditions of the people living around Mokesh Beel and prepare a health profile;
Identify potential or evidence derived environmental factors associated with those prevalent health problems; and
Identify potential pollution related health indicators.
