  • OR of infection/disease for individuals in communities that are classified as close or medium from Borb√≥n as compared with those communities that are classified as far (remote). The continuous measure is the OR comparing the farthest with the closest using a continuous measure of remoteness. Estimates were adjusted for age of individual, population size of village, and community-level sanitation.
