Abstract
There are a lot of people in India who don't have access to clean water to drink or good toilets to use. Most rural communities lack adequate sanitary facilities, as seen by the results. Current research finds that people of the study region have food, health, education, and living standard challenges owing to inadequate WATSAN facilities. Prevention of infectious and communicable illnesses relies more on regular and thorough hygiene practices. With that in mind, the primary objective of this research was to determine how a shift in personal hygiene practices in the home affected the prevalence of disease. Multivariate linear regression analysis showed that those who had lived in poor hygienic conditions in both 2015 and 2021 had a significantly higher (= 0.053, P 0.001) percentage of household members become ill with any form of short-term morbidity compared to those who had lived in better hygienic conditions in both years. Households who had poor hygienic conditions in 2015 had a significant decrease ( β = 0.028, P< 0.04) in the number of household members who became ill owing to any short-term morbidity in 2021, when compared to homes that had poor hygienic conditions in both years.
