The 2014 Annual Network meeting was held in Chapel Hill, USA on 13 October 2014 as part of the weeklong Water and Health Conference at the University of North Carolina. There were more than 40 individuals representing 30 different organizations in attendance.

The meeting began with a series of presentations on global access to safe drinking water, followed by reports from Network members on their experiences in the field. The morning ended with a session on strengthening HWTS through an enabling environment and specific considerations for achieving programmatic effectiveness. This session also featured a presentation on the WHO International Scheme to Evaluate Household Water Treatment Technologies and an overview of national planning efforts in Haiti.

In the afternoon, the discussion shifted focus toward the Three Cs in HWTS: achieving Correct, Consistent, and Continued Use, a key element of the M&E Toolkit for monitoring and evaluating HWTS programmes, followed by presentations on HWTS learning opportunities initiated by Network members. The final afternoon session involved breakout discussions focused on integrating HWTS into education, healthcare and nutrition, and the broader WASH sector, including water safety planning. The event concluded with a presentation of the proposed 2015 Network work plan and priority focus areas.
