Making the invisible, visible: Quantifying human experiences with water to improve public health
Leverhulme Trust Lecture

28 Nov. 2023 • 17:30 - 18:30 • REMOTE OR London WC1E 7HT United Kingdom

Problems with water quality and quantity are increasing in frequency and severity throughout the world with major implications for nutrition, health, and wellbeing.

High-resolution, globally comparable data have been extremely helpful for understanding the human health impact of other health issues, e.g. food insecurity, but have not existed for water. To fill this gap, the Water In Security Experiences (WISE) Scales have been developed. This is a first-cross-country equivalent way of measuring water access and use that has now been used in more than 50 countries.

Professor Sera Young will describe how the WISE Scales can be used to estimate the prevalence of water insecurity, make decisions about targeting resources, understand previously unrecognized causes of poor health outcomes, and evaluate the impact of water interventions. She will conclude by laying out the evidence to date about how water insecurity shapes poor nutrition, mental health, and ​physical health, and the implications of water insecurity in the face of climate change.​

Speakers

Sera Young (Associate Professor) - The focus of Dr. Young’s work is on the reduction of maternal and child-undernutrition in the first 1000 days, especially in low-resource settings. Methodologically, she draws on her training in medical anthropology (MA, University of Amsterdam), international nutrition (PhD, Cornell) and HIV (Fellowship, University of California San Francisco) to take a biocultural approach to understanding how mothers in low-resource settings cope to preserve their health and that of their families.
