Combined household water treatment and indoor air pollution projects in urban Mambanda, Cameroon and rural Nyanza, Kenya

Combined household water treatment and indoor air pollution projects in urban Mambanda, Cameroon and rural Nyanza, Kenya
  • World Health Organization (WHO). February 2011
  • In 2007, the World Health Organization issued a request for proposals on the integration of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and Household Water Treatment (HWT) at the household level in Africa. The aims of this initiative were: 1. To explore whether or not it is possible to achieve synergies and economies of scale by linking HWT and IAQ interventions; 2. To examine the potential for expansion and scaling up in the implementation of projects combining these interventions; 3. To document integration models for these interventions; 4. To examine the added┐value of integrating these two approaches, in a way that contributes to an improvement in health outcomes, as well as sustainability and adoption of use. This report presents the country reports of two selected projects, one in urban Douala, Cameroon, the second in rural Nyanza, Kenya.
