Water Security, Sanitation and Hygiene at USAID

Summary

Global Progress and Possibilities

USAID’s assistance has resulted in millions of people gaining access to hygiene facilities and sustainable drinking water and sanitation services during a time the world is being altered by the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and increasing conflicts. 

Reliable access to safe water and sanitation saves lives, improves livelihoods, and makes communities more resilient. Investments in water security, sanitation and hygiene are critical for progress in nearly all aspects of global development. USAID works every day with governments, other local stakeholders, and partners to make it possible to get universal access by 2030. Learn more about USAID’s results in this fact sheet.
