Health. Safety. Dignity. Our vision is a world in which everyone has access to clean water and safe sanitation systems designed for their needs. A world in which girls and women have control over their time, their education, and their lives. A world in which we restore our environment through the conservation and recycling of critical resources.
We are the Duke University Center for WaSH-AID (Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Infectious Disease) - an intensely collaborative translational research team, working closely with more than 20 academic, non-profit, and private industry partners to facilitate the development and sustainable deployment of novel technology-based health solutions for communities around the world.
To achieve our mission, WaSH-AID:
- Leverages cross-disciplinary expertise and partnerships
- Empowers women and girls with gender transformative solutions
- Embraces a user-centered philosophy in our design and engineering
- Relies on data and user input to drive decisions
