    Most research on the area of deaths related to unclean drinking water has been with specific focus on deaths in children.  The UN reports that over 1.5 million children die each year due to conditions resulting from a lack of access to clean drinking water.  This translates to a child under five years old dying every 20 seconds from these unlivable circumstances.  It’s estimated that worldwide, 425 million children under the age of 18 still do not have access to improved water supplies.  For the last seven years, the UN General Assembly has made March 22nd “World Water Day”, where the focus is improving these devastating conditions, focusing on water sanitation and security.
