Africa User Research in Water & Sanitation—Ethiopia

To increase access to safe drinking water and reduce the incidence of waterborne diseases, PATH’s Safe Water Project has been exploring the potential of market-based approaches to provide clean water for low- and middle-income households. The goal of the project's product development work has been to understand user needs and preferences around household water treatment and storage, foster widespread demand for and availability of new and/or improved products, and raise the bar for the affordability, quality, value, and performance of these products. This report focuses on the results of user research in Ethiopia.

PATH’s Guide to New Water Filters With the C1 Common Interface

In 2006, PATH launched the Safe Water Project with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to investigate the potential for market-based approaches to providing clean water for low- and middle-income users with the ultimate goal of reducing disability, illness, and death related to unsafe water. PATH worked with product developers to design the C1 Common Interface—a standardized connection point between water filter devices and filter elements that allows interchangeability of parts between different household water filters. Manufacturers have designed water filter devices with this specification to enhance competition and choice for low-income households in developing settings. PATH's comprehensive guide to water filters with the C1 Common Interface includes product specifications, test results, advice on what to consider when comparing products, practical advice for the procurement and import of products, and manufacturers’ contact details.

PATH’s Integrated Approach to Reducing Diarrheal Disease in Cambodia: Combining Prevention and Treatment

This fact sheet summarizes the PATH Safe Water Project's work in Cambodia to integrate prevention and treatment options for diarrheal disease. By harnessing successes from one prevention-focused project (microfinance loans for household water filters) and one treatment-focused program (oral rehydration solution and zinc), the project streamlined community strategies and increased overall efficiency for better results. Key to this effort were the local, village health volunteers whom PATH trained to educate and empower Cambodian women to successfully protect their families from the dangers of diarrheal disease.
