Abstract

Household water treatment (HWT), such as boiling, chlorination, and ceramic filtration, is an interim solution to solve the problem of unsafe drinking water at home, especially for households that do not have access to safe drinking water services. However, previous reports indicate that many people in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) do not use HWT regularly, i.e. still drink unsafe and untreated water. A behavioural study is needed to find reasons for these phenomena, which can help related stakeholders in designing appropriate interventions to increase the regular use of HWT.
