UNICEF WASH Programme Brochure
Inadequate WASH services and behaviours result in diarrhoea, cholera, respiratory infections, malnutrition and stunting with cognitive development impacts. UNICEF believes immediate and concerted efforts are needed to achieve universal access to safe and sustainable water supply. This requires collaboration between public and private sectors to prioritize the most vulnerable communities, build capacity, strengthen systems and governance, rapidly scale up investments on WASH, and improve data quality and access to emerging technologies. We have set ambitious goals: we aim to reach, with partners, 1 billion people with safely managed sanitation by 2030, with the Sanitation Game Plan. And by 2030, we aim to reach 450 million children and their families in highly water vulnerable areas with access to safe and affordable water supply via the Water Security for All Initiative.
