"WaterGuard is the Smell of Safety": A Qualitative Exploration of Home Water Treatment Behaviors in an Antenatal Safe Water Program—Machinga, Malawi, 2011

Since 2006, PATH has investigated how commercial market forces can help extend access to safe water in developing countries and reduce waterborne disease. Promoting household water treatment and storage products targeted to low-income consumers is a key part of the strategy. This poster summarizes PATH's work in Malawi working with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to assess the effects of an innovative program that promoted chlorine disinfectants for household water treatment to pregnant women seeking antenatal care. The poster was presented at the Water and Health: Where Science Meets Policy conference hosted by the University of North Carolina Water Institute in October 2012.

Western Kenya Cervical Cancer Prevention Project (WKCCPP) Final Report December 2004

The WKCCPP Project, implemented from 2000 to 2004, was a collaborative effort to develop and evalulate a model cervical cancer prevention program suitable for rural, low-resource settings in Africa. During the life of the project nearly 2,400 women were screened using visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), visual screening using Lugol's iodine (VILI), and a combination of both screening tests, followed by cryotherapy. WKCCPP clearly demonstrated that cervical cancer prevention services based on these tests can be established and sustained in rural Kenya with relatively modest start-up requirements and support. With commitment at national and local levels, an affordable and effective cervical cancer prevention service could be phased in over the next five to ten years, and thousands of women's lives could be spared.
