Prevention of Waterborne Diseases

Prevention of Waterborne Diseases:

Electrolytic generators that produce sodium hypochlorite from salt water are now affordable and available for use in the developing world. Villages that produce and use sodium hypochlorite and that store treated water in vessels to protect it from recontamination have had nearly 50% reductions in diarrheal disease incidence for pennies per family. This strategy has been successfully field tested in households in Bolivia and Zambia, in oral rehydration clinics in Guinea-Bissau, and among street vendors in Guatemala.
