WASH in health care facilities
Global baseline report 2019
This report is the first comprehensive global assessment of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in health care facilities. It finds that one in five health centres has no sanitation service – meaning unimproved toilets or no toilets at all – and that many centres lack basic services for handwashing hygiene and safe segregation and disposal of medical waste.
In an accompanying report, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Health Care Facilities: Practical steps to achieve universal access for quality care, the World Health Organization and UNICEF detail eight actions governments can take to improve WASH services in health care facilities, including establishing national plans and targets, improving infrastructure and maintenance, and engaging communities.
