PDF File Size: 851 KB | Download   
Adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are essential components of providing basic health services. The provision of WASH in health care facilities serves to prevent infections and spread of disease, protect staff and patients, and uphold the dignity of vulnerable populations including pregnant women and the disabled. Yet, many health care facilities in low resource settings lack basic WASH services, compromising the ability to provide safe care and presenting serious health risks to those seeking treatment.
