Nepal is one of the world’s poorest countries and sanitation coverage in the mountainous republic remains low. In this episode, Om Prasad Gautam – a SHARE-funded PhD student at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine – analyses the situation in his homeland, including opportunities to address water, sanitation and hygiene challenges. He draws on his experiences working for WaterAid Nepal and the World Health Organization, and also describes his plans to carry out a trial to investigate the impact of food hygiene upon diarrhoeal diseases as part of his studies.
