Safe Water for All

In developing countries a very large section of the population-both in urban and rural areas-does not have convenient access to safe water. Millions of people die annually due to water related diseases. Water related diseases are the leading killers of infants and children. About 5 million infants die every year from intestinal diseases before they complete one year of life. Every day a large number of people die from unsafe water as two-third of the people on the earth have no other choice except to drink it, cook with it and bathe in it.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 1 hospital bed out of 4 in the world is occupied by a patient who is ill because of polluted water. Provision of a safe and convenient water supply is the single most important activity that could be undertaken to improve the health of people living in rural area of the developing world.

The problem of providing a convenient supply of safe water to all remains unsolved. In some parts of the world, women and children spend half of their time for fetching water. Some have to walk as far as 25 kilometres or so to reach the source of water. In India, the people of village in the hilly and desert regions, where nearest water sources are about 1.6 kilometres away, have difficult access to water. Besides, these water sources contain toxic elements, which are dangerous to health and are carriers of epidemic diseases like cholera and guinea pig infestation. Many other villages also have inadequate and unprotected drinking water sources. Various schemes and projects undertaken to supply safe water have met with several difficulties. According to the Evaluation Report on the Accessibility of the poor to the Rural Water Supply, 1980 of the Planning Commission of India, There are several weak points in the programme. Remedial measures need to be undertaken to ensure safe water supply conveniently through bore, tube of drill wells and pipes, require regular and timely supply, adequate number of supply points, better management for breakdown and out-of-order conditions, provision for separate public points for the poor and increase of supply hours.

Besides, measures should also be taken to educate the community to make them aware that water from open dug wells without parapets and by individual collections from ponds, tanks, lakes, etc. , is basically unsafe.
