Book Contents

Water and Health is a component of Encyclopedia of Biological, Physiological and Health Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. The volume discusses wide spectrum of water-related pathogenic micro-organisms. Water is closely associated with the spread of many of the diseases referred to. Infections are predominately caused by contaminated drinking-water supplies and shortcomings in sanitation and personal hygiene. Current health risks associated with drinking-water supplies have been used to define needs and priorities (Future needs and priorities). Attention is given to both pathogenic micro-organisms and hazardous chemical compounds. Challenges referred to include those created by increasing numbers of people with high susceptibility and vulnerability to waterborne disease.

These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

Wilhelm Otto Karl Grabow was Professor and Head of the Department of Virology, Faculty of Medicine, and University of Pretoria, South Africa. He has been engaged in research, training, and education on health-related water microbiology for more than thirty years. He is the author of more than 150 publications and 200 conference presentations
