Worm diseases are world classic health problem particularly in developing countries. The prevalence of worm diseases about 35% - 70 %. In some area the prevalence much higher, particularly in remote area. The existance of worm diseases represent the illness and death due to the gastroenteritis, because the similar predisposition factors corelated. The effort to decrease the worm diseases direct corelated to decreasing the illness and death of children in developing countries.
The main strategy to cut the cyclic of the worm diseases is ensure all people do the bowel motion in the healthy toilet. However, the provide the toilet for all family is great problem since of the budget and behaviour of the people. Based on the previous research indicate that the deep community counselling and cheap stimulation to have toilet among the villagers in certain area (BAL-KATAJAGA Strategy) change the people perseption and habit use the toilet. Also introducing simple, cheap, growth “BALatrine” make the acceptibility of latrine develpoment were accepted well in community. The previous research conducted by Griffith University – Australia and Diponegoro University Indonesia showed that the program latrine for all in village decrese the illness of worm diseases, Gastroenteritis, E. Coli contaminttion in water source and egg worm contamination in the soil. Also save the money more that $ 5000/year/villages due to the absence of day work due to the illness.
Magister Epidemiology Diponegoro University With Griffith University have been Collaboration in Research Development.

International Seminar Food And Water Borne Diseases : Evidance Based Intervention Of “Katajaga” As a Solve
Health is one of main indicator on national development. Health programe became a main key toward prosperity people. So that, WHO have priorities health programe toward Mileneum Development Goals (MDGs).
Severe infection that cause of morbidity and mortality became a main thinks toward MDGs target. Gastro intestinal Infection is a main causes of mortality and morbidity in development countries, ofcourse in Indonesia too. That situation triggering of poverty, because make loosing time of work, high of budget medication, and also anemia in preagnancy. More than 100 million cases of diearrhea had accurred in Indonesia which 145.000 death per year. More cases focus on child and babies.
Reseach Collaboration among Diponegoro University and Griffith University Australia, have been implemented to reducing gastroenteritis and helminthiasis by community development to made “Katajaga” (Jamban Keluarga). That research had reduced approximately 30% for gastroenteritis an helminthiasis. Based on this result above, “Katajaga” have contribution to reach MDGs target, cut off dinamic transmition and makes better environmental sanitation.
