Abstract

A review of the so-called “non-health” benefits of urban sanitation shows them to be important indicators of human wellbeing, and more important to the householder than those which benefit health in the narrower sense of preventing disease. The health benefits are surprisingly difficult to measure, but recent advances suggest that they are greater than previously thought.
