Management of the arsenic problem in Bangladesh : some challenges according to the statement of Dr. Suzanne Hanchett of the Planning Alternatives for Change, LLC1 as presented at the International Learning Exchange : Arsenic in Bangladesh,  organized by UNICEF Bangladesh and the Department of Public Health Engineering in Dhaka, Bangladesh on 6 April 2009. It has been more than ten years since the government and NGO’s of Bangladesh first mobilized to deal with arsenic as a national problem. It has been a great shock to people at all levels of society that the universally accepted message, “tubewell water is safe water,” is no longer valid in all places. Government, NGO’s, and villagers alike are still struggling to accept the idea that clear, cool, fresh-tasting ground water may somehow be “poisonous.” [authors abstract]
