Description/achievement of initiative

WaterHealth International is the leader in providing scalable, safe and affordable clean water solutions to underserved and impoverished communities through innovative business models. On a yearly basis, our facilities purify over 100 million liters of water, which is received by over 4 million people a number that is growing as our business models expand along with the geographic areas in which we operate. We currently have operations in India, Ghana, and the Philippines reaching nearly 4 million people with clean water. Our very existence and success thus far is demonstrative of the true potential of utilizing private sector strengths for public health successes. WaterHealth's commitment to Every Woman Every Child is the expansion of WaterHealth programs to the Global Strategy's priority countries of Bangladesh, Nigeria and Liberia in 2011-2012. Over the life of the program, it is estimated that such expansion into these priority countries will result in: improved access to clean water to 3 million people; drastically lowering the incidents of child diarrhea and other water borne diseases; employing over 250 people (job growth); and enabling progress to meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in these countries.
