Healthcare in Asia – WaterSHED Spotlighted by The Economist

WaterSHED was featured in a special edition of The Economist magazine, entitled Healthcare in Asia: The Innovation Imperative. The article showcased the simple, yet game-changing, innovations in health service delivery that are being scaled-up in Asia by both NGOs and the private sector.

Released at The Economist’s annual Healthcare in Asia conference in Hong Kong (17-18 FEB 2011), the full-page focus on WaterSHED notes that: “Market-based prevention is the idea behind WaterSHED, an alliance of social enterprises and NGOs that strives to raise standards of water, sanitation and hygiene in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam… WaterSHED approaches the problem by developing innovative products that can be made and sold by local entrepreneurs for a profit—all supported by marketing and education programmes to raise understanding of why clean water and sanitation are important.”
