Exploring socio-economic, environment and behavioural factors in gastrointestinal infections
Local contexts and environments influence the behaviour of individuals, households and institutions and consequently the burden of gastrointestinal infections. By utilising and improving place-based surveillance data, we aim to best understand the high burden of infection in disadvantaged places and hard to reach groups. In turn this will help develop national and local policy and practice to reduce inequalities in the causes and consequences of gastrointestinal infections.
