Benedict presented on the establishment of TREND as a SaniPath Training Hub and the recent work they have conducted alongside metropolitan assemblies. Ato and Joshua provided a presentation on the use of data in sanitation intervention planning and decision making. Data from the 2018 SaniPath Exposure Assessment in Kumasi, Ghana were used to call attention to potential areas for intervention to improve public health by reducing exposure to fecal contamination. These presentations highlighted the capacity building activities of TREND pertaining to behavioral, environmental, and laboratory work involved in conducting exposure assessment data collection and the potential impact of results provided by this type of work. TREND is continuing in their role as a SaniPath Training Hub by disseminating results and sharing the experience of partner organizations to create demand within other municipal assemblies.

CL Moe University of Florida Emerging Pathogens Institute Seminar Series Dr. Christine Moe presented at the University of Florida as part of The Emerging Pathogens Institute Seminar Series. Dr. Moe shared findings from SaniPath Exposure Assessments conducted in seven cities around the world. Comparisons of results from assessments in different settings allows for trends in exposure, both regionally and globally, to be explored to highlight routes of exposure to fecal contamination that are of increased importance. Produce, Open Drains, and Flood water are commonly observed to be dominant pathways of exposure for adults and children across study sites.
