Assessing exposure to fecal contamination in urban and peri-urban environments


The SaniPath Tool is designed to assess public health risks related to poor sanitation and to help prioritize sanitation investments.


Exposure to feces in the environment is different for every person, neighborhood, and city. The SaniPath Tool captures these differences to create customized results and prioritize sanitation investments.


The SaniPath Tool has been deployed in ten major cities around the world. The process is systematic yet tailored for each location where it is performed.
