An important aspect of the study was the exploration of “process”—what went on at the side of the canal, during a visit to a rural health center, or during an education workshop, and what these activities meant to the various actors involved. Researchers who have conducted observational studies recognize that there is no “best” way to conduct water contact studies, and that they should be designed to answer specific research questions. The community-based and environmental activities involved collaboration with other ministries, in addition to the Ministry of Health, and were characterized by a preventive approach. All findings from studies in rural health units and schools, as well as environmental conditions and interventions, were presented to the Ministry of Health.
