Water, global change and health: Research gaps, research priorities

Colin BUTLER

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Research priorities to improve water-associated global health problems should be derived through a formula reflecting burden of disease and intervention cost-effectiveness. This is far from the case, due to global inequality and also because of institutional lags which mean most populations and policy makers conceptualise the world as a myriad of small groups, rather than one interlinked system.
