These are exciting but challenging times around the world. We at Aquatabs feel that in partnership we can jointly have a bigger impact. This newsletter focuses on a couple of examples of how Aquatabs is working with others to improve the lives of many. We are happy to see so many of you this week at the UNC Water and Health Conference!
Medentech commits to expand its impact at UN General Assembly
Since its launch in 2010, Every Woman Every Child has mobilized hundreds of partners to help advance the Global Strategy Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health. All partners have an important role to play, including the private sector. The Aquatabs team just returned from New York where the team attended the United Nations General Assembly and committed to joining the Every Woman Every Child movement. This movement seeks to help end all preventable deaths of women, children and adolescents within a generation.
As you know Medentech seeks to drive health impact globally by improving access to safe drinking water and reducing surface contamination by developing, manufacturing and marketing cost effective disinfection solutions. Based in Ireland, Medentech is dedicated to helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals around the world; via emergency response, social marketing, helping social entrepreneurs thrive, and distributing water treatment commercially. To do this, Medentech seeks to offer low-cost water treatment solutions such as Aquatabs, Aquatabs Flo and Aquatabs In-line to help address the water needs around the world.
Over the next three years, Medentech seeks to not only grow the volume of water treated with Aquatabs products but also test out and scale up innovative models for sustainable water treatment in collaboration with our partners. In particular, Medentech commits to grow the volume of liters of water treated with Aquatabs products globally from 11 billion a year in 2016 to 15 billion in 2020 by launching new products, testing new business models, and scaling up operations in new and existing markets.

These commitments are just one example of Medentech’s dedication to our joint vision that every child and every woman should have healthier and happier lives.
