Grant Funded: Chemical water quality and impacts on the treatment of severely malnourished infants and children

Chemical water quality and impacts on the treatment of severely malnourished infants and children

Funded by the Humanitarian Innovation Fund (UK)

(01/04/2018 – 31/12/2018)

Chemical water quality may be linked to medical complications in malnourished infants receiving treatment in inpatient therapeutic feeding centres (ITFCs). This project will establish new guidance for maximum allowable concentrations of key chemical water quality parameters in ITFCs and explore innovative technical approaches for improving chemical water quality in emergencies, in order to help aid workers reduce mortality and improve patient care in feeding programs.
