Faecal sludge field monitoring and emergency sanitation treatment kits

Because I will be attending a workshop (Red Cross internal) later this month about faecal sludge field monitoring and emergency sanitation treatment kits, I will have the chance to get some hands-on experience with a few recent innovations in these fields.
I don't know all the details yet, but this looks already very interesting if you want to test helminith eggs under field level conditions:

www.parassitologia.unina.it/flotac/mini-flotac/?lang=en
www.parassitologia.unina.it/flotac/fill-flotac/?lang=en

I will likely also have the chance to talk to the people behind this project:
www.elrha.org/map-location/microbialslud...l-sludge-monitoring/

Last but not least, there is supposed to be also a presentation on this:
akvo.org/akvo-caddisfly/

I will try to summarize some details when I find the time, but for now: Anyone has some specific questions or topics to follow up on regarding this?

Hi Kris

Thanks for this post I really love hearing about new toys and tech in the sector, please do share your thoughts. Maybe we need a reviews section for SuSanA like you get in magazines?!

Hi Kris:

Thank you very much for sharing these interesting information. We'd like to explore conducting the Helminth eggs test in the field conditions here in Nepal. Can you please help us connect with the relevant person in this regard?

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best,
Bipin.

Hello Bipin,

I will try to figure out who could be the right person to link you (Enpho?) to. In fact I will be coming to Nepal shortly after to work there a few months, so I will try to give Enpho a visit and we could meet in person.
