Malawi AIDS Drinking Water Project

The Safe Water International (SWI) Malawi AIDS Drinking Water project will install water treatment systems that block sources of dysentery that arrive through drinking water and thereby quickly impact the health of AIDS patients. Small-scale drinking water purification systems will be established at twenty AIDS home care locations in Malawi, and training will be conducted on their operation. Monitoring at each site will proceed to learn which systems operate most effectively and most economically. The water treatment systems which prove most durable and economical to operate will be showcased to all other AIDS caregivers throughout Africa.
