Ahmedabad: Wastewater irrigation also leads to diarrhea! 27.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
A study has found that a large portion of Ahmedabad's farming population relies on water unsuitable for irrigation, which has had significant adverse health effects on them. The year long study covered 187 households from four communities that used surface water, groundwater and wastewater for irrigation.

With the onset of the rainy season, the WHO today said it is strengthening contingency measures along with health partners for the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh to minimise the health impact of the monsoon for nearly 1.3 million people living in Cox's Bazar.
