Medentech is dedicated to helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by improving access to safe drinking water and reducing surface contamination through developing, manufacturing and marketing cost effective disinfection solutions. One way that Medentech does this is by offering low-cost water treatment solutions such as Aquatabs, Aquatabs Flo, and Aquatabs In-line to help address water quality needs around the world. In support of Every Women Every Child, Medentech commits to:
1) Grow the volume of liters of water treated with Aquatabs products by partners from 11 billion a year in 2016 to 15 billion in 2020 by launching new products, testing new business models, and scaling up operations in new and existing markets around the world reaching over 4.7 million people.
2) Donate over 2,000 Aquatabs flo to help improve the water quality in health facilities in Bangladesh from 2017-2020. These fully automated chlorine dosing devices for shared water points require neither reliable electricity nor consistent water supply to function effectively.
3) Scale up access to safe water, by piloting Aquatabs flo with Community Owned Water Supply Organizations in Tanzania in rural and mid-sized towns in the key districts of the Rufiji and Wami-Ruvu river Basins by 2020.
