A View of Global Public Health from Cincinnati

By Gary Hunter, Chair of Disinfection 2011 Conference

 

As chair of Disinfection 2011, I’ll admit some bias toward the importance of this meeting, but public health is something we water quality experts take very seriously. Many parts of the world suffer from the inability to disinfect their water, and although they could be eradicated, serious, preventable outbreaks of waterborne disease (like what we’ve seen in Haiti recently) continue to crop up. To do our jobs and protect public health and the environment, it’s critical to maintain the most updated and continuously improved disinfection process and methods possible, and the best place to learn about it is at Disinfection 2011 in Cincinnati next month.

 

WEF is delighted to partner with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Ohio Water Environment Association, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for this very interesting program. We are also very pleased to have top leaders from Cincinnati MSD participating in the the conference. The wide range of topics covers disinfection technology and issues that apply directly to very small and much larger facilities. Another nice thing is the program’s two-track approach to disinfection, one emphasizing developed countries and the other focused on disinfection in underdeveloped nations.

 

I’d also like to point out an innovative pre-conference workshop program, including an all-day workshop on some of the latest technology out there today, ceramic pot and biosand filters. Although the public may not think about disinfection that often, scenarios like Haiti underscore the need for excellence in related education, and water quality experts will find it at http://www.wef.org/disinfection.

To my mind we tend to think that we are absolutely powerless when we are face to face with problems

The importance of clean drinking water cannot be overlooked. The recent cholera outbreak in Haiti shows what happens when humans ingest water not fit for drinking. I am happy to see that strides are being made to bring filtered water to many people. Unclean drinking water can lead to many health risks and could equate to large medical bills.

For men, the Moncler Outlet can show their taste in winter Moncler Sale website, for ladies, the Juicy Couture Tracksuits and the Juicy Couture Handbags let them look more fashion, so they choose Juicy Couture Outlet!
