Each year on March 22nd, The United Nations observes World Water Day, a day that raises awareness about the importance of water. Over 2 billion people still live without access to clean drinking water which contributes to diseases like diarrhea, affecting their health, family planning, and economic prosperity.
Clean Water Worldwide by 2030
The year 2030 is the target The United Nations and World Water Day has committed to ensuring clean water access worldwide. DiaResQ and Pantheryx, our parent company, support World Water Day through our Equity of Access Initiative. For this initiative, we work with partners such as Project C.U.R.E., to train community health workers on diarrhea prevention, sanitation procedures and treatment, as well as set up programs to track and monitor the program’s impact on quality of life among children in the community.
