Kersia, with its brand Aquatabs®,  committed to providing access to clean water for all

Access to clean water is a fundamental human right and the key to a sustainable future, as enshrined in SDG 6.

Clean water not only safeguards health but also plays a pivotal role in elevating human dignity and improving quality of life. In an increasingly interconnected world, we must recognize that the water crisis is not just an issue for those directly affected but is a global
concern that impacts us all.

Kersia provide products that ensure children in schools, families, communities and healthcare facilities around the world can drink safe water everyday.
Only by prioritizing and safeguarding access to clean water for all can we hope to build a more equitable, healthy, and sustainable world.

Worldwide, over two billion people still lack access to safe drinking water1.

Each year at least 1.4 million people – many of them children – die from preventable causes linked to unsafe water and poor sanitation.2

We’re looking to change that.

Research studies
Sample Research Paper

Effect of in-line drinking water chlorination at the point of collection on child diarrhoea in urban bangladesh: a double-blind, cluster-randomised controlled trial

Key Findings:

Children in the treatment group had less WHO-defined diarrhoea than did children in the control group

Interpretation :

Passive chlorination at the point of collection could be an effective and scalable strategy in low-income urban settings for reducing child diarrhoea and for achieving global progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 6.1 to attain universal access to safe and affordable drinking water.

Microbiological effectiveness of household water treatment technologies under field use conditions in rural Tanzania

Key Findings:

Given that microbiological performance across technologies was comparable, decisions regarding scale-up should be based on other factors, including uptake in the target population and correct, consistent, and sustained use over time.
