Why this Article: When studying risk factors for infectious diseases very often they are seen as not changing over time and not dependent on contextual factors such as whether a village is located upstream or downstream from a major city. This study assesses how the regional context, both spatially and temporally, influences local risk factors for diarrheal disease. The results offer important insight into the local prevention of diarrheal disease and the conclusions may be applicable to many other infectious disease risk factors.
