EFFECT OF IN-LINE DRINKING WATER CHLORINATION AT THE POINT OF COLLECTION ON CHILD DIARRHOEA IN URBAN BANGLADESH: A DOUBLE-BLIND, CLUSTER-RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Amy J Pickering, Yoshika Crider, Sonia Sultana, Jenna Swarthout, Frederick GB Goddard, Syed Anjerul Islam, Shreyan Sen, Raga Ayyagari, Stephen P Luby
Children in the treatment group had less WHO-defined diarrhoea than did children in the control group
Passive chlorination at the point of collection could be an effective and scalable strategy in low-income urban settings for reducing child diarrhoea and for achieving global progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 6.1 to attain universal access to safe and affordable drinking water.

HOUSEHOLD WATER TREATMENT USING SODIUM DICHLOROISOCYANURATE (NaDCC) TABLETS: A RANDOMIZED, CONTROLLED TRIAL TO ASSESS MICROBIOLOGICAL EFFECTIVENESS IN BANGLADESH
THOMAS CLASEN, TANVEER F. SAEED, SOPHIE BOISSON, PAUL EDMONDSON, AND OLEG SHIPIN
While 61.7% (116/188) of samples from the intervention households met World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for 0 TTCs in drinking water, none of the 191 samples from control households met such a benchmark.

Given that microbiological performance across technologies was comparable, decisions regarding scale-up should be based on other factors, including uptake in the target population and correct, consistent, and sustained use over time.
