In Nagpur, India this week for a three-day workshop and conference on water safety with colleagues from WHO, UNICEF and Government of India (via the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research’s National Environmental Engineering Institute). Nagpur is a city of 2.5 million people in the same state as Mumbai (Bombay). It is most famous for its delicious, juicy oranges and for being the geographic “centre” of the country. My interest in public health began in India in 2009 when I observed water-related health issues on a visit to a local slum. Feels like I have come full-circle to be back here addressing these challenges … and India is one of my favourite countries of all I have visited.
