Description:Caption:
With a large stack of plastic buckets in hand, this Trianon, Haiti community member was photographed as she was standing at the entryway to a freshwater spring that provided drinking water for the town. She’d fill these containers with spring water, and take them take back to her residence. First, she would bring the water to be checked by staff members of the National Directorate for Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA), who’d test the water to determine its chlorine content. With Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) support, 54 of the 270 Drinking Water and Sanitation Technicians, or TEPAC (Techniciens en Eau Potable et en Assainissement pour les Communes) across Haiti, work for, and are equipped with motorcycles and testing equipment, and salaried through DINEPA.
Additional Information:
"Access to safe water and sanitation are fundamental to public health. Haiti’s National Directorate for Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA) was created to address challenges to and lack of regulations for the rural water sector in Haiti. Since its inception, DINEPA has established regional water and sanitation offices in each of Haiti’s four main regions, and Rural Departmental Units in each of the country’s 10 departments. To further support and strengthen this work, CDC developed and helped implement training for over 250 rural potable water and sanitation technicians who work in all rural areas of Haiti to inventory, rehabilitate, and disinfect rural water supplies."
