Title: Water, sanitation and health: an intra-urban comparison in the municipality of Caraguatatuba, Brazil
Author: Johansena, IC

Bueno, MDD
Abstract: The rapid urbanization of Latin America during the twentieth century resulted in poor sanitation conditions that exposed its population to significant health risks. One of the most important examples is outbreaks of dengue fever, a multifactoral disease resulting in part from unsanitary water. This work seeks to understand the possible interrelation between the distribution of environmental sanitation services, including water, and the distribution of dengue by comparing intra-urban areas in Caraguatatuba, Brazil, using GIS tools such as regular grids, cluster analysis, and the application of Moran's index.
