Point of Use Water Treatment in Emergencies


Summary

We tested the effectiveness of a point-of-use water treatment product Pur, developed by Proctor & Gamble, in internally displaced Liberian populations residing in camps outside of Monrovia. Pur significantly reduced prevalence and incidence of diarrhea, and this trial was the first test of the product in an emergency setting.
