Health Impact & Field Studies


LifeStraw® Family 2.0 is a newly designed water filter that has just been made available on the market. Preliminary field studies on user acceptability are currently being conducted by BRAC in several rural communities in Bangladesh and by Del Agua Health Limited in several communities in Western, Rwanda. In addition, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is evaluating the adoption and health impact of the filters in Western Rwanda. As these studies have been independently conducted, Vestergaard will not have access to the results until they are made public, at which point they will be available on the website.
