The cases chosen for this collection represent a wide array of public health issues that go into the makeup of what can be termed the New Public Health (NPH), which includes traditional public health.

The knowledge of water supply, environmental hygiene and health is very relevant as part of the curriculum in Public Health Education, Microbiology, Nursing and Medicine. The theoretical and practical knowledge of water, sanitation and hygiene .
