The F-diagram shows faecal-oral disease transmission routes. Faeces which are not disposed or stored safely represent a health risk for humans, since pathogens in faeces can be transmitted through many different routes to humans – i.e. flies, contaminated foods, fingers (unwashed hands), through fields (crops) and fluids (water). The F-diagram depicts those relationships in a simple manner so that everyone can understand them.
