Study of sales of Kenyan water filters shows promise

PATH partners with local agency to explore new way to offer residents water filters

Clean water is scarce in Kenya’s Nyanza Province, located
on the shores of Lake Victoria. People in this region often
collect their drinking water from shallow wells, nearby
streams, or through rainwater catchment. The water
is often contaminated, leading to a high prevalence of
diarrheal disease in the region. To combat disease caused
by unsafe drinking water, PATH’s Safe Water Project has
been evaluating various distribution models for placing
water treatment devices in low-income households in
multiple countries.
