Water Purification in Emergencies

Water Purification in Emergencies Overview

Introduction

The health of survivors of a natural disaster is exposed to high risk – even if the actual disaster was of short duration. In most disasters and other emergencies, the main health problems are caused by poor hygiene due to insufficient water supply and the consumption of contaminated water (THE SPHERE PROJECT 2011). Water and sanitation (see also [7694-sanitation in emergencies overview]) are critical determinants for survival immediately after and during the initial stages of a disaster (GWC 2009).
