Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

Across the world, lives are at risk from a lack of clean water services and inadequate and unsafe sewage and refuse management.

Too many children and adults are exposed to infectious diseases caused by poor water quality, sanitation and hygienic practices. The needs of the poorest and most vulnerable are often overlooked. These resources will help communities develop access to clean water to drink, to establish safe and secure toilets, and to encourage education on good hygienic practices that will help both children and adults to lead safe and secure lives.
