The Albuquerque Journal shares information on Aqua Research’s recent work in eight African countries: Uganda, Ghana, Kenya, Niger, Mali, Liberia, Zambia and Madagascar. According to the global nonprofit PATH, chronic disinfection shortages contribute to healthcare-associated infections that affect up to 28% of patients in Uganda. Pilot sites using the Aqua Research technology never ran out of disinfectant, allowing them to improve infection prevention and control. In addition, PATH estimates the Aqua Research system reduced chlorine costs by 29% per liter compared with commercial purchases. University of New Mexico engineering professor Ramiro Jordan says, “The product can have tremendous social impact. There’s a worldwide need for it.” Read more in the Albuquerque Journal article below.
