November 2013 WASH/Nutrition Literature Update

Below are 3 of about 12 WASH/nutrition related abstracts from the 20th International Congress of Nutrition conference in Sept 2013 that we are adding to the WASH/Nutrition Library at: blogs.washplus.org/washnutrition/

The library also has a Community of Practice Members Update page at blogs.washplus.org/washnutrition/cop-member-updates/ to contain notices of upcoming events and recent publications by COP members. It has links to the Alive & Thrive November newsletter which has a new technical brief, presentations from a Forum on Stunting Reduction in Ethiopia, etc. Please email me any notices, new publications, etc that you would like to have posted.

There is also a simple Discussion Forum on the library at blogs.washplus.org/washnutrition/news/ where COP members can post questions, etc. It currently has an information request from Angela Tavares of CRS about environmental enteropathy so please contact her if you have resources or information.

1 - EVIDENCE LINKING HANDWASHING TO IMPROVED CHILD FEEDING OUTCOME | 20th International Congress of Nutrition , Granada, Spain, September 15–20, 2013

Luby 1,3 1International Centre For Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh, 2 Alive and Thrive, Bangladesh, 3 Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine, Center for Innovation and Global Health Stanford University, Stanford, USA

Background and objectives: Handwashing with soap can prevent childhood infections; reduced infections and improved complementary feeding can reduce malnutrition. We describe formative research to link handwashing with soap to complementary feeding and an intervention trial.

Methods: A formative study on perceptions, practices, barriers and motivators, among households across three districts in Bangladesh, with a child 6-23 months of age given complementary food included video data collection, motivational exercises, indepth interviews, and focus group discussions. An intervention trial of an integrated handwashing and complementary feeding included qualitative studies and baseline-endline surveys among up to 450 households.

Results: Distant location of soap and water from the child feeding place was a common barrier to handwashing with soap before child feeding; commonly water only was used. Limited knowledge of the link between handwashing with soap around food events and childhood disease prevention was detected. Facilities that brought soap and water together, located near the kitchen was a motivator and reminder for handwashing with soap. By the trial end, 65% of participants were observed washing hands with soap at key times, 75% reported that they intended to adopt and continue, 83% followed complementary feeding recommendations, the main motivators being child health and convenience. Trial target handwashing practice was associated with intervention component exposure, handwashing facility near the kitchen and perceived link between disease and handwashing. Acceptable complementary feeding was associated with wealth, older child age and intervention component exposure.

Conclusions: The integrated handwashing and improved complementary feeding intervention was acceptable and feasible. Handwashing facilities location increase convenience and facilitate handwashing. Increasing knowledge on complementary feeding and links between handwashing and disease prevention were incorporated into a national media campaign to motivate behavior change.

2 - POSITIVE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES IN PROGRAMS FOR WOMENS AND CHILD NUTRITION IN BANGLADESH: SCALING UP TIPPY-TAPS | 20th International Congress of Nutrition , Granada, Spain, September 15–20, 2013.
E. Williams1, Y. Arafat2, T. Williams3, A. Guyon3 1SPRING/Bangladesh, Helen Keller International, Gulshan, Dhaka, Bangladesh 2SPRING/Bangladesh – Save the Children, Dhaka, Bangladesh 3SPRING – JSI Research and Training, Arlington, USA
Background and objectives: Bangladesh has made notable progress in reducing child mortality and morbidity. However, high rates of undernutrition remain, with 41% of children Methods: In 2012, USAIDs SPRING project collaborated with Bangladeshs Food Security and Nutrition Surveillance Program conducting a baseline survey of nutrition, hygiene and agricultural practices among 770 households in SPRINGs intervention areas. Respondents were asked about use of soap in handwashing over the last 24 hours and unprompted responses on reasons they washed their hands.
Results: Though up to 60% of households reported hearing messages on appropriate handwashing only 12% and 40% washed their hands with soap before feeding children and after defecation, respectively. Therefore, SPRING refined its interventions targeting pregnant and lactating women, and children under two to increase positive nutrition and hygiene practices and access to diversified diet. Through advocacy, training and supportive supervision with government and non-governmental groups, SPRING promotes adoption of ‘small-doable actions’on nutrition and hygiene following life cycle approach and has provided training to 1839 health workers and 485 agriculture and community workers. SPRING established 783 Farmer Field Schools (FFS) providing low income households with access to diversified and nutritious vegetables, fruits and animal source foods. Household ‘tippy-taps were introduced to improve adoption of hygiene practices in target households. SPRING is the first project to scale up tippy-taps to rural Bangladesh. Seventy percent of trained agriculture workers report including nutrition and hygiene with making of tippy-taps in agriculture extension sessions and approximately 6000 households participating in FFS have installed tippy-taps to date. This successful and rapid adoption of practices is attributed to streamlined and practical messages given across multiple platforms.
Conclusions: Integrating tippy-taps into nutrition, hygiene and homestead food production seems a promising strategy to improve handwashing behaviors.

HOUSEHOLD WATER ACCESS AND SANITATION AS INDICATORS OF VITAMIN A AND ZINC EFFICACY ON GUT PARASITE RESOLUTION | 20th International Congress of Nutrition , Granada, Spain, September 15–20, 2013
K. Long1, P. Vasan2, H. Raga3, J. Santos4, J. Rosado5, A. Mamun6 | 1 School of Population Health, University of Queensland, Australia | 2 Government Primary Health Center, Madurai, India | 3 UN World Food Programme, West Timor, Indonesia | 4 School of Medicine, National Autonomous University of Mexico, Mexico | 5 School of Natural Sciences, Universidad Autonoma de Queretaro, Queretaro, Mexico | 6 School of Population Health, University of Queensland, Australia
Background and objectives: Vitamin A and zinc supplementation can reduce childhood intestinal parasite burden but household characteristics involved in parasite transmission may modify efficacy. We evaluated supplementation efficacy on Ascaris lumbricoides, Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia lamblia infection resolution among children from households differing in water access, sanitation and hygiene.
Methods: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial carried out in Mexico City assigned children 6-15 mo of age to receive vitamin A every 2 months, a daily zinc supplement, a combined vitamin A – zinc supplement or a placebo and followed them for 1 year. Parasite infection durations among children in the different treatment arms determined in monthly collected stools were compared using hazard analyses stratified by personal and household factors.
Results: Vitamin A + zinc supplemented children from households with no piped water had reduced G. lamblia infection resolution compared to children from households with piped water. Children in all three treatment arms from households with dirt floors had reduced A. lumbricoides resolution compared to children from households with concrete floors (P for interaction=0.06, 0.01 and 0.07, respectively). Increased E. histolytica infection resolution was found among vitamin A supplemented children from households with dirt floors and no indoor bathrooms.
Conclusions: The contrasting outcomes of supplementation found in the stratified analyses suggest that children enrolled in mass chemoprophylaxis programs may be targeted for specific supplementation regimens using household characteristics as indicators.

There will be a High Level Panel of Experts for Food Security and Nutrition will prepare a report on Water and Food Security for 2015. The e-consultation will run until February 20th, 2014. This may be of interest for members of WG12 who are interested in the connection between water and nutrition - sanitation is mentioned (see point one of the attached document), but water is the focus.

For more information, please see the information email that we received:

The UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS) in its 40th Session (October 2013) requested the High Level Panel of Experts for Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE), to prepare a report on Water and Food Security for its 42nd session in 2015.

As part of its report elaboration process, the HLPE is launching a scoping e-consultation to seek views, public and expert feedback and comments, on a proposed scope and building blocks of the study. The scope is available here: www.fao.org/cfs/cfs-hlpe/en/. The feedback received will be used by the HLPE Steering Committee to finalize the terms of reference of the Study.

To participate to the e-consultation, please visit the dedicated HLPE e-consultation
website (www.fao.org/fsnforum/cfs-hlpe/water-food-security-scope), or send directly your contribution to the HLPE Secretariat at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Contributions are welcome in English, French and Spanish.

The e-consultation will run until 20th February 2014.

The February update contains a new review of WASH, environmental enteropathy and early child development. It reviews evidence linking WASH, anemia, and child growth, and highlights pathways through which WASH may affect early child development, primarily through inflammation, stunting, and anemia. Other studies and resources include an update from Om Prasad Gautam of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine about a food hygiene study in Nepal and information about a Clean Fed and Nurtured event to launch a special journal issue on integrating nutrition and early childhood development.
