WASH and Health Guidelines

The "WASH and Health Guidelines" Collection compiles recent humanitarian practices on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), aiming to improve the health levels of affected populations. According to European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations, "Water, sanitation and hygiene (also known as WASH) are closely connected sectors and essential for good public health. In emergency and crisis situations, providing access to clean water in sufficient quantities is paramount. Basic sanitation and hygiene education are important for a healthy living environment. [...]. Lack of access to clean water and to basic sanitation, and low hygiene standards increase the vulnerability of people to epidemic outbreaks."
