This conference supplement contains papers, which were presented at the conference. In the first session, an overview session, the potential for infection transmission in the home is reviewed. Other papers in this session include a situational analysis of water, sanitation and hygiene firstly in India and then in the South East Asia region as a whole, together with a paper which evaluated cost-benefit assessments as a means of defining priorities for action. The overview session is followed by sessions devoted to each of the main areas of home hygiene, namely hygiene practice in the domestic and peri-domestic settings, handwashing, water, sanitation, and food hygiene. For each hygiene area, the related issues, solutions and benefits were evaluated in a keynote paper, which was followed by papers evaluating case histories of intervention measures and other community projects. This supplement will be useful for the professionals, scientists and sector leaders, as well as community organizers for promoting hygiene and public health in the developing countries.
