Faulty perceptions of water treatment and a false sense of protection from locally available water sources increased the risk of children to diarrhoeal diseases in Vellore, Tamil Nadu.

Recent evidence shows that as high as 95% of diarrheal deaths among children under the age of 5 can be prevented by water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) related interventions that include handwashing, proper excreta disposal and most importantly improved water quality. Evidence from developing countries shows that interventions promoting the filtering of water and safe storage are most effective at the household level but face the limitation of lack of sustained use in the long run.
