Disgust and Desire: Changing Sanitation and Hygiene Behaviour

Professor Val Curtis will deliver this talk entitled 'Disgust and Desire: Changing Sanitation and Hygiene Behaviour'.

Professor Val Curtis, Director of the Environmental Health Group at LSHTM will give an overview of the state of WASH in the world and show how new evolutionary approaches to designing behaviour change programmes can help to crack these problems. Val will draw on many years of experience of designing programmes and advising Governments and Industry on WASH across Africa and Asia.

The Global Health Lecture Series is held every Monday during the first two terms, with the exception of Reading Weeks. Leading experts from the School present up-to-date summaries and debates about a range of global health issues.  Each lecture is 45-60 minutes, followed by Q&A, and they are open to all students as well as anyone interested in learning more about global health.

Please note the lectures are very popular, so you are advised to arrive early.

Session recordings are made available in the Panopto block on the top right of the Global Health Series Moodle page.


Free and open to all. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
