Highlights

721 million more people use improved water supplies between 1990 and 2012. This is 23% increase and a greater rate than in most other regions. The majority of people in the region use appropriate household water treatment to improve their drinking water quality. However, 184 million people in the region still do not have access to improved water supply. In particular, poorer households are much less likely to have access than richer households.
