  • Description:
    At present, 884 million people do not have access to improved water sources and 2.6 billion people lack access to improved sanitation.1 At any given time, close to half the people living in the developing world are suffering from one or more diseases associated with inadequate water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).2 The most recognized WASH disease is diarrheal illness, which causes more than 1.5 million deaths worldwide every year, mostly among children younger than five years of age.3 Millions more suffer from devastating WASH-related neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), such as soil-transmitted helminthiases (STHs), Guinea worm disease (GWD), trachoma, and schistosomiasis.
