WASH: Sanitation Resources

The "WASH: Sanitation Resources" Collection aims to support procedures that promote sanitation in humanitarian contexts. As declared by WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, on 1 October 2018, “Sanitation prevents disease and promotes human dignity and well-being, making it the perfect expression of WHO’s definition of health, as expressed in its constitution, as “A state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. . . The guidelines recognize that safe sanitation systems underpin the mission of WHO, its strategic priorities and the core mission of ministries of health globally.”
