Reducing inequalities through universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene

Public health sanitation Water security Health sustainable economics Sustainable development

This paper highlights the deep connections between inequalities and access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).

WaterAid maintains that clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene are human rights, to which millions of people have their access denied. Lacking access stops people having an equal chance to be healthy, educated and financially secure. This violation both leads to and stems from growing inequalities that are holding back lives, nations and the entire development agenda.
