Horizon International works to find and advance solutions in the interconnected areas of health, the environment, population and economic well being, and in recent years, is concentrating on addressing water and sanitation and hygiene (WASH) problems and solutions. At the heart of its WASH efforts are two editions of books, Water and Sanitation Related Diseases and the Changing Environment: Challenges, Interventions and Preventive Measures, a Wiley-Blackwell collaboration with Horizon International, for which Horizon’s head, Janine M. H. Selendy, is Editor. These 2 Editions were written by 75 authorities from the fields of climate change, epidemiology, environmental health, environmental engineering, global health, medicine, medical anthropology, nutrition, population, and public health. The books present an interdisciplinary picture of the conditions responsible for water and sanitation-related diseases, the pathogens, vectors and their biology, morbidity and mortality resulting from lack of safe water and sanitation, distribution of these diseases and the conditions that must be met to reduce or eradicate them.
Horizon’s programs include a solutions site at http://www.solutions-site.org, an oceans website at http://www.magicporthole.org, and international TV programs, many of which can be viewed on YouTube at www.youtube.com/user/jselendy, other educational materials, lectures, conference participation and consultations are means employed to achieve its goals.
