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. (Source: excerpt from Bacterial Waterborne Diseases: DBMD)
