As of 1994, more than 1 billion people in the world still lacked access to safe drinking water (WHO/WSSCC/ UNICEF, 1996). The problem of unsafe drinking water is recognized to be not an isolated technical problem, but interrelated to the problems of adequate water supply, community education in public hygiene, access to sanitation, and effective and safe disposal of human and animal wastes (USAID, 1990). Nevertheless, a device that offers affordable, simple, robust and low-maintenance disinfection of drinking water can be an important part of the solution.
