Experiences from household and community defluoridation projects have been collected. They are presented in the form of critical parameters that need to be considered for the success of household defluoridation projects. Parameters are classified in three groups. Motivation of households seems to be critical since fluorosis is not always considered as the main problem of concern and improvements are not always visible for a number of years. Appropiate and cheap technique is always a must in poor villages. Finally the organisation of supporting functions that may include quality control, technical and motivating support, as well as general educational initiatives.
