Hurricane Katrina Update

International

  • How can global safe water be achieved? (Emerging Infectious Disease Journal, October)
  • Opinion: Dying for a drink of water (Washington Post, September 20)
    Commentary: "About 1.2 billion people globally lack safe water to consume and 2.6 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. There are also stark comparisons: Just one flush of a toilet in the West uses more water than most Africans have to perform an entire day's washing, cleaning, cooking, and drinking."
