Distribution Models for Water Treatment Products in Malawi: Lessons Learned

In 2012, USAID/Malawi tasked the SHOPS project with documenting the implementation of different models for promoting chlorine-based water treatment products and providing lessons learned and recommendations for scale up. SHOPS identified four different models for water treatment products, either currently in progress or that could be initiated, in four USAID-priority districts of southern Malawi. This report describes the four models, presents data on their coverage, and draws lessons learned about their implementation to inform scale-up efforts. Each of the four models is described in a case study format, using primary data from a household survey on water treatment behavior conducted by SHOPS in June 2013, supplemented with secondary data from monitoring and field reports collected by implementing partners.
