Abstract

A systematic literature review was conducted to assess the link between extreme water-related weather events and diarrheal disease in developed and developing countries. The Navigation Guide Review Methodology was utilized to rate the quality of included studies and to determine the strength of evidence across studies. The strength of evidence was sufficient and demonstrated a positive relationship between extreme water-related events and diarrheal disease in both developed and developing countries.
