George Gaines, MSW, MPH





The morbidity data from Michigan Community Health and the Detroit Department of Health show several disease outbreaks during the last two years. This paper will describe the increases and offer a view at the etiological factors that were involved.


A theory and hypothesis are given supporting this concept’s validity. (The hypothesis is derived from) data from the study by Ford Hospital1 & The Morbidity Data from the City Health Department 2012 thru 2017. The supporting theory is the lack of household water will affect household sanitation increasing the risk for disease.
