The use of wastewater for public health surveillance offers significant benefits for disease prevention and control. It is a cost-effective approach that does not rely on invasive samples from individuals. Wastewater surveillance, integrated with existing surveillance mechanisms, could enhance India’s epidemiological capabilities by providing real-time insights into community-level disease patterns. This integration could be facilitated through efforts to strengthen public health laboratory networks and the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission.
