Strengthening counseling corner in NCD corner for reducing risk due to non-communicable diseases in Jashore district

Water Supply

Arsenicosis can be found while we drink arsenic contaminated water. Since arsenic comes out a body while drinking 2-10 years, it is necessary to test water twice a year but people are not habituated on it. Healthcare centers where service receivers visit for receiving treatment need to ensure safe drinking water there. AAN would like to teach the importance of regular water test at the same time AAN will repair tube wells and install new drinking water where there is no.  This effort will reduce the risk of drinking arsenic contaminated water.
