Water Treatment Plants for Hospitals. IMWATER supplies Water Compact Treatment Plants for hospitals.
As the prevalence of COVID-19 accelerates across Africa, over 40% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to clean water and are unable to heed the advice of health experts to wash their hands as a primary way to stop the spread of the virus. Preventing infection thus remains out of reach for many.
Action in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene sector, also known as WASH, is therefore critical to containing COVID-19.
Investments in improved water and sanitation infraestructure is a public health priority for countries and communities as it significantly contributes to reduced mortality, ill health and impacts of water-related pandemics which are a major economic drain.
Investing in WASH is a no-regret policty and decisions taken now to improve these public health systems are going to be worth it, regardless of the uncertainty around COVID-19.
