Project Update 3 - Water, Health and Sanitation

Water, health and sanitation proved the focus of these four projects, as they sought to tackle a diverse set of problems in these linked areas. Clean water and high levels of hygiene are crucial for both short term and long term health for communities in the developing world and the teams were aware of the gravity of the projects they were working on. Two teams focused on Chlorine, one on production and one on dosing, while another centered on how to make Latrines friendly for all the family. The final project in this area had a much more direct link with health, trying to develop an ICT Enabled system for monitoring the health of low weight babies. Some of the posters below are in Twi, so don't be disheartened if you cannot understand them!

I may join a water and Sanitation project soon. Water is being tackled by many partners but sanitation lacks any initiatives and people just feel shy talking about it. Does the community freely discuss sanitation issues there?
