WASH & COVID-19 Resources

Reliable access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) protects lives during the pandemic, and provides a foundation for economic recovery while preventing new infections. USAID is helping to mitigate the economic impact of COVID-19 on water and sanitation systems, protect progress, and support rapid recovery. During this global pandemic, the team will share the latest resources from USAID and select partners that cover COVID-19 and WASH.
