Sanitation Ventures is a three-year project run by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to tackle the problem of inadequate sanitation worldwide. In 2009, the project received a grant of US $4.8 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Our objective is to improve the lives of people with access to poor or insufficient sanitation.
Good sanitation is widely recognised as one of the greatest advances in public health, yet it remains unavailable to billions of poor people in developing countries. Our diverse teams of researchers and advisors enable us to take novel scientific and business approaches not previously applied to the challenges of on-site sanitation.
It’s this wide range of complementary skills that will help us deliver innovations to improve the lives of millions of poor people in developing countries
