LifeStraw – Portable Water Purification

LifeStraw and LifeStraw Family are both point-of-use water interventions. These are truly unique offerings from
Vestergaard Frandsen that address the concern for  obtaining safe drinking water at home and outside for people with access to  poor quality water and at an affordable level.

Lack of access to safe drinking water contributes to the staggering burden of diarrhoeal diseases worldwide, particularly affecting the young, the immunity system compromised and the poor. Nearly one in five child deaths – about 1.5 million each year,  is due to diarrhoea. Diarrhoea kills more young children than AIDS, malaria and measles combined2. Drinking contaminated water also leads to reduced personal productive time, with widespread economic effects.

Lifestraw in action

These safe water tools have the potential to provide access to safe drinking water, which would yield health and economic benefits; thus contributing to the achievement of other related goals like poverty reduction, childhood survival, school attendance, gender equality and environment sustainability.
