The South Pacific is paradise for people – but it is also paradise for parasites! Public health researcher and activist David MacLaren shows how working together with local villagers can inform how toilets are designed - to not only reduce parasite transmission, but also suit local environments and incorporate local taboos.

Dr David MacLaren is a member of the Atoifi Health Research Group. He gave a talk for a local TEDx event in Cairns, Australia.
