Healthcare professionals are at the frontline of delivering essential healthcare to society – the newborn, the sick and the old.

But we often lack the most basic means to keep our patients safe – clean water, toilets and the means to maintain hygiene.

That's why we've teamed up with other health professionals around the world because we know:

  • Clean water, toilets and good hygiene are fundamental to delivering quality healthcare for all patients.
  • Without them, millions of newborn babies and mothers are at risk from life-threatening preventable infections every year.
  • Better water and sanitation services in healthcare facilities make for a better, and safer, working environment and a healthier and happier workforce.

Take action now in the campaign for quality healthcare for all by 2030:
