Life-saving especially for children under-5
When introduced to communities, washing hands with soap can reduce the risk of diarrhoeal diseases by up to 47%. Handwashing by mothers and birth attendants was associated with a 40-44% reduction in neonatal mortality in a recent study in Nepal.
At SaniTap, our analysis suggests that in countries with high disease burdens such as Angola, we are able to achieve a cost-per life saved of just $1,100. This is far lower than any other WASH intervention product.
Innovative functionality prevents 'second touch point' contamination and saves water
To avoid recontamination of washed hands, our unique spout design easily pulls down with just two fingers, and can be closed by a gentle upwards tap with the back of the hand. The net keeps the bar of soap conveniently near the flow of water and prevents the bar from falling on the ground or getting lost.
To minimise the use of water, important in water-scarce environments, the spout dispenses a minimal amount of water that is more than sufficient to wash hands. The device can conveniently be hung by a nail or from a stick and delivers 3 litres of water over 10 minutes - that's enough for a family of 5 to wash their hands 3 times a day.
Collapsible design enables rapid (air) shipping
The SaniTap's collapsible and light-weight design enables rapid shipping and distribution, making it the ideal product for air lifting - vital during rapid-response emergencies.
Having passed rigorous field testing, the product is robust and will serve an average family for over one year. The design includes UV protection; however for optimal durability it is advised to keep the product out of direct sunlight, as with all plastics. The spout has been rated for ten thousand handwashing episodes.
The SaniTap's print is fully customisable and can contain messaging such as partner branding and WASH education and behaviour change messaging as required.
