On February 25, 2003, more than 30 representatives from United Nations agencies, international nongovernmental organizations, research institutions, professional associations, and private companies met in Geneva, Switzerland, to establish the International Network to Promote Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage, sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO). The group has since convened at the Kyoto World Water Forum, Kyoto, Japan, in Washington, D.C., and in Cape Town, South Africa. At the next plenary meeting, in Nairobi, Kenya, on June 14–15, 2004, participants will consider a 5-year strategic plan to reduce waterborne disease through specific actions in research, advocacy, communication, and implementation.
