    Abstract

    Writing about poo Raises awareness, saves lives Oddest line on CV I am definitely not a poet. Fortunately, the organizers of Poo Haiku had nearly 150 other entries from which to select 12 winners to have their haikus memorialized on the 2017 Poo Haiku calendar. This may seem like fun and games (and, let’s face it, trying to write a haiku about going #2 is pretty fun), but there’s a more serious purpose behind it. The Poo Haiku contest is sponsored by Defeat DD, an organization sponsored by PATH, a Seattle-based non-profit organization focused on global health. Michael Stevenson’s recent article on PATH in Third World Quarterly looks at how the organization has sought to bring together public and private actors to work together to develop useful health technologies in low and middle income countries. Defeat DD’s mission is to bring greater public attention to diarrheal diseases and encourage more work on developing treatments for diarrheal diseases.
