Women + Water WaterAid Fact Sheet

Access to safe water and sanitation is essential for community health and well-being. In India, 163 million people lack access to improved water sources and 210 million lack access to improved sanitation. Over the next five years, this number is expected to increase as India faces a growing water and sanitation crisis. The Indian apparel industry–as one of the most intensive users of water–is a key player in ensuring sustainable access and stewardship of this precious resource.

Transforming Health Systems: The Vital Role of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

In 2015, WHO and UNICEF launched the first global report on the status of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in healthcare facilities in low- and middle-income countries. It revealed that healthcare facilities often lack access to water, sanitation and the means to maintain good hygiene, seriously undermining the quality of healthcare. Since then, WaterAid has been working with partners and ministries of health to improve WASH in healthcare facilities in several countries.
