International Network on Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage

 

The e-newsletter of the International Network on Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage is sent out every six weeks and focuses on recent developments in policy and practice relating to increased access to safe drinking water. The newsletter provides a snapshot of recent activities of the Network's 140 members and co-hosts WHO and UNICEF and is received by more than 1300 subscribers from governments, academic institutions, international and locally-based NGOs and private sector companies located all over the world.

Subscriptions

If you would like to receive the newsletter directly in your inbox, please email your request to subscribe to hwtsnetwork@unc.edu. We encourage you to include your full name, your organisational affiliation and a brief 1-2 line summary of your interest in HWTS (e.g., are you looking for technical specifications on manufacturing ceramic filters, or are you a beginner and simply looking to learn about what HWTS is all about).

Subscribing to the mailing list means you will also receive other announcements from time to time about events, publications, and new technology developments or opportunities to participate in studies or other projects on HWTS. You can view an archive of recent messages sent to the mailing list here.

You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by sending an email with "unsubscribe" in the subject heading to hwtsnetwork@unc.edu.

Contributions

Contributions to the newsletter are welcome. Material considered relevant includes recent publications (peer-reviewed or otherwise), presentations, events, resources, calls for papers/proposals, etc.

Submissions should include accompanying descriptive text, limited to no more than 75 words. Material should be recent, factual and not self-promoting. For example, we do not accept new product announcements or requests for funding. An example of what is acceptable is a request for assistance in improving your product or approach to implementing HWTS. Links to your organisation's own website are encouraged. Please refer to a previous issue of the newsletter for an example of the sorts of material that is typically included.

This is an invitation to submit not a promise of publication. The Network Secretariat (WHO, UNICEF and the Water Institute at UNC) may choose not to publish your submission or may delay it for a future issue of the newsletter. Further, your submission may be edited to ensure brevity or clarity and we may contact you for further details.

Send submissions to hwtsnetwork@unc.edu.
