Abstract
Technical factors, such as engineering and medical

approaches, and non-technical factors, such as education and

community participation, were evaluated with regard to how

they affect water and sanitation programs. Benefits and

limitations of each factor were assessed to determine which

limitations significantly impact the effectiveness of

programs. With this appreciation of technical and nontechnical

factors, case studies of control methods of

different diseases were evaluated. This led to recommendations

of appropriate mixes of technical and non-technical

services for disease control. This evaluation was utilized

to develop a planning approach to effectively integrate

interagency efforts for the control of multiple diseases.
