Daniel Gallardo Albarrán from the Rural and Environmental History Group has been awarded a NWO Veni grant for his project: 'Global health inequality and the diffusion of sanitation since 1850'
Global health inequality and the diffusion of sanitation since 1850
Clean water and toilet access are extraordinarily unequally distributed. Although the long-term roots of these inequalities are well-known, little is understood about their evolution. This project analyzes how local political contexts shaped the global adoption and subsequent diffusion of waterworks and sewerage in major cities worldwide since 1850.
