The Utility Approach: Extended distribution for household water filters in Ethiopia

Many towns and cities in Ethiopia have no safe drinking water supply 24/7. Broken pipes and power cuts allow contamination to enter the piped systems. In poorer and peri-urban areas especially, water is not delivered seven days per week so water has to be stored. Non-delivery of safe water has multi-fold causes which are widely known but are not often openly admitted for obvious reasons.

Abstract

Many towns and cities in Ethiopia have no safe drinking water supply 24/7. Broken pipes and power cuts allow contamination to enter the piped systems. In poorer and peri-urban areas especially, water is not delivered seven days per week so water has to be stored. Non-delivery of safe water has multi-fold causes which are widely known but are not often openly admitted for obvious reasons.
