Liberia

CLEAN WATER FOR AN ENTIRE COUNTRY

With the help of Sawyer filters, Liberia will be the first developing
country with clean water, border to border, in every household.
Sawyer filters will bring clean water to the last 20% of the
previously unreachable rural Liberia areas by December 2020.

THE STUDY:

Independent, U.S.-based scientific research teams from Calvin College are collecting and processing data from GIS (geographicinformationsystem)software. Currently, they are tracking the implementation of 100,000 Sawyer filters placed throughout Liberia. The results will be submitted for peer review and scientific publication in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

Measurements include:

  • Diarrhea reduction
  • Work and school days recaptured associated with waterborne sickness
  • Purchased water savings and medical savings associatedwith waterborne sickness
