Water supply, sanitation & hygiene

Water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are basic services, crucial to human and economic development. For large numbers of the world’s population, however, these services remain out of reach – with WASH infrastructure simply not existing or, where it does exist, being mismanaged. Links between WASH and health systems are often overlooked, although, with the right policies in place, many countries have seen rapid increases in access to WASH, improved health outcomes and falling child mortality.
