A household water storage chlorination initiative is underway in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) by the National Centre for Environmental Health and Water Supply (commonly known as Nam Saat) under the Ministry of Health (MoH). A number of laboratory tests and field trials are on-going, supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with other External Support Agencies and NGOs. This household water storage chlorination has been organized under the National Action Plan for the control of cholera, prepared by the Ministry of Health. The test projects for household water storage chlorination are being piloted in five provinces and the capital city. This paper briefly highlights the initiatives and the learning on household water storage chlorination undertaken by Nam Saat in Lao PDR.
