Dr Dick Fenner

The Centre for Sustainable Development and the internationally leading Water Institute, Gillings School of Global Public Health,  at the University of North Carolina led by Professor Jamie Bartram, have secured collaborative funding to develop new joint research projects  and workshops. The focus of the partnership will be to integrate complimentary research programmes and seek to apply evidence-based solutions that partners can apply to reduce exposure to waterborne diseases, with an initial focus on sub-Saharan Africa. Dick Fenner, who will lead the Cambridge team, said this is a welcome opportunity to develop links with colleagues in the USA who have similar goals to ourselves, and will form the basis of a network which will increase the opportunities for dissemination and implementation of our respective work.
