The board of directors of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), Chevy Chase, Maryland, has approved the creation of a new task force to help advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), with the objective of providing support to projects that include the use of UV technology to protect public health and the environment in low- and middle-income settings.
IUVA Task Force activities will include water technology reviews, surveying local contacts and households and arranging meetings and webinars with stakeholders at the national, organizational, community and household level. The Task Force plans to develop a white paper detailing opportunities and challenges for UV to address the UN SDGs and propose a path forward for the IUVA.
Non-governmental organizations (NGO) and volunteers from low- and middle-income settings involved with access to clean water are encouraged to join the IUVA effort.
