We are thrilled to spotlight an upcoming webinar organized by the IWA Wastewater-based Epidemiological Surveillance Cluster. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, wastewater surveillance has emerged as a powerful tool in tracking infectious diseases within communities. However, while much attention has been given to sewered settings, there's a crucial need to explore the potential of wastewater and environmental surveillance in non-sewered settings, which are prevalent in many parts of the world.

This webinar aims to shed light on the public health value of wastewater and environmental surveillance in non-sewered settings, covering a wide range of infectious diseases from polio to respiratory viruses. The webinar will delve into concrete case studies and experiences drawn from low- and middle-income countries, showcasing the effectiveness of these cost-effective surveillance measures in enhancing public health outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize Importance: Understand the significance of wastewater surveillance for infectious disease monitoring in non-sewered settings, contributing to enhanced public health understanding.
  2. Best Practices: Gain insights into the best practices, do’s and don’ts of wastewater surveillance in non-sewered settings.
  3. Opportunities and Challenges: Appreciate the opportunities and challenges inherent in establishing surveillance systems, fostering collaboration between water and public health stakeholders for effective outcomes.
