Every year 2 million children die from diarrheal disease and contaminated water is often to blame. With chlorine water treatment could significantly reduce this toll. The most common approach for chlorination in areas without piped water infrastructure is to offer small bottles of chlorine for sale to consumers. However, the use of chlorine has been slow to take hold in this system. In this study area Kenya, for example, less than 10% of households regularly use chlorine to the monthly cost of approximately US $ 0. 30, despite several years of vigorous social marketing that has raised awareness about the product. The researchers looked at the free provision of diluted chlorine through a system of point-of-collection, which includes a container to dispense the product placed at the water source, a local promoter in order to encourage the use of the product and the freedom to provide a supply of chlorine solution packaged in bulk. This mass supply drastically reduces delivery costs in relation to the retail approach, which requires chlorine in small bottles and packaging compared to deploying door-to-door, which also significantly increases marketing costs. Hence, mass distribution of water sources makes freedom to provide more realistic. In addition, this method of delivery is very convenient to use chlorine. Users can treat drinking water when you collect. The time required by shaking and waiting for chlorine-treated water are at least partially accomplished automatically during the walk home from the source. The base source dilute chlorine disinfection approach to water treatment makes this salient and public Act, over which makes it cheaper and cheaper. The regulator provides a daily visual reminder for families to treat their waters at the time when it is more salient — as it harvests water — and maximize the learning potential, formation of norm and social network effects by making public the regulator. Potential users can see others using the regulator, and have the opportunity to ask questions; also know that others see if they use the dispenser. Adoption of chlorine supplied through distributors dramatically after adoption of chlorine for water treatment for domestic use only. When the communities have been randomized to receive a promoter and a dispenser of communities, adoption was about 40% in the short term (three weeks), but rose to more than 60% of the medium-term (three to six months), which represents the percentage of earnings 37 and 53 points, respectively, compared to the communities that receive them. In contrast to absorption layers obtained with the dispenser, clinical-based coupon redemption began and fallen over time. Over 40% of households that had them redeemed coupons 8 months into the program, but this figure fell to 20% in 12 months. This discovery suggests that the success of the dispenser may be due not only to the zero price but also to the psychic cost of treating water that is obtained by treatment based on origin, as well as other attributes such as Visual reminders. Although the adoption rates are slightly lower than those achieved in some studies, the dispenser system relies far less on external staff contact (e. g., by repeated visits by enumerators home) than they do those the linden method ipa approaches; Therefore, the costs are considerably lower. The chlorine dispenser is extremely convenient, with a dispenser of finding comparative study the most effective from a range of low-cost approaches to reduce diarrhea. . The success of chlorine dispenser in testing phase described here resulted in a concerted effort to scale the intervention as a sustainable program. Starting in April 2014 more than 1. 8 million people were blacks being served by chlorine dispenser, intending to reach 4 million by the end of 2014. The program has transitioned to the test action, a new organization that has begun with support from IPA to scale evidence-based initiatives. More information can be found on their website here ,.
