Challenges to Scaling Up Point-of-Use Water Treatment in the Developing World
Lecture by Dr. Rob Quick of CDC on Point of Use Water Treatment. Almost a billion people in the world are at risk of diarrhea morbidity and mortality due to unsafe water at the household level. Starting with the recent outbreaks of Cholera in Haiti, Dr. Quick describes how epidemic investigations led to the identification of unsafe water in households, the development and testing of home treatment options, the development of an evidence base, and the development, testing, and evaluation of implementation strategies. Excellent lecture for those committed to strengthening capacity to improve health and well being.

Scenarios from Africa is an HIV/AIDS community mobilization, education and media process carried out with and for young people. It was initiated by Hubert Department of Global Health faculty member Kate Winskell and her husband Daniel Enger with African colleagues in 1996. Since 1997, contests have invited young Africans to contribute scripts for short fiction films to educate their communities about HIV/AIDS. The young contest participants are mobilized by non-governmental and community-based organizations and local, national and international media across sub-Saharan Africa.

The winning ideas in each contest are selected by juries and, following adaptation, transformed into short fiction films by leading African directors. More than 35 films have been produced to date and are available in over 25 languages. Widely broadcast and used extensively as an educational resource at community level, they are among the most widely used audio-visual resources for HIV communication in Africa.

For more information, please visit or follow Scenarios from Africa on Facebook. You will find links to a small selection of Scenarios from Africa films below. To see and download additional films in multiple languages, visit or
