Abstract: Globally, 1.8 billion people use contaminated water, leading to childhood diarrhea. Ceramic water filters can reduce diarrhea when used consistently and correctly, although adherence can decline over time. These declines have previously been investigated using agent-based models (ABMs) in Limpopo, South Africa. In this thesis, the previous ABM was re-built with minimal field data, and ad... read more
