BENEFITING: MedWater

EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2015

Darrell Adams

THE STORY:

The MedWater model was built from two important ideas. The first is that everyone should have safe water and improved sanitation. The second is a question. Why isn't safe water and  improved sanitation available to everyone given the billions of dollars being spent by thousands of organizations on these issues? To say it's complicated doesn't really address the fact that safe water and basic health are not by themselves complicated. Solutions for both are well documented and 'tools' and skilled labor abound. Implementation is what's complicated!

MedWater's answer to implementation is COLLABORATION! Collaborate with those stakeholders who most benefit from sustainable community based public health. The pilot project with Timmy Global Health shows the effectiveness of collaboration. The stakeholders in this project are Timmy Global Health, MedWater, Patronato (social services agency for the Napo Province) and five Amerindian (indigenous) communities where Timmy brings in a medical team for clinic every 90 days. Today these five communities have local leadership taking responsibility for improving community health and making safe water available to everyone in their community. 

The benefit to the stakeholders?
Timmy Global Health - less time spent treating water related illnesses - more time for health issues that need medical skills, and better results for prescription meds taken with SAFE water.
Patronato - Social services agency works to provide health care and safe water for Amerindian communities but it is difficult to provide sustainable safe water solutions. The pilot project with Timmy has created great interest and an invitation from several agencies for MedWater's assistance in communities beyond those Timmy provides clinics.
Amerindian Communities - They quickly get improved health and safe water, and basic health skills to continue improving their communities. 
MedWater - Our goal: improved public health in developing countries - shared costs between the stakeholders - improved effectiveness and efficiency for each stakeholder - empowering the economically marginalized.

Recent Sustainable Development Goals announced by the UN include the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. Already many are saying the projected costs (trillions) are not enough. MedWater thinks money and resources can go much further if interested stakeholders collaborate. The work we've started in Ecuador with Timmy Global Health is a great example. We need your support and the support of anyone who believes collaboration and sharing resources better impacts Global Health. I hope I can count on you NOW and in the months ahead!
