This sounds like a great opportunity to bring real-time information to community health workers to allow them to encourage behavior change based on real information. I know that often people hold to outdated or unsubstantiated beliefs around why people are getting sick when they don't have new, concrete data to dispute it. I think that being able to show graphically that houses around certain water sources have more cases of diarrheal disease or that houses that don't use bed nets have more instances of malaria, people will be convinced enough to change their behavior. Will this information be shared with the county government as well?
