Global Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene (WASH)
Global access to safe water, adequate sanitation, and proper hygiene education can reduce illness and death from disease, leading to improved health, poverty reduction, and socio-economic development. However, many countries are challenged to provide these basic needs to their populations, leaving people at risk for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)-related diseases.
