Abstract:

Prof. Kevin McGuigan is associate professor of medical physics in the RCSI. For the past 25 years, he has been involved with the development, implementation and evaluation of solar water disinfection (SODIS) as an intervention against waterborne disease for rural communities without sustained access to safe drinking water in low- to middle-income nations throughout Africa and Asia. In this talk, he will explain why often you need more than just a simple scientific solution to a very human problem.
