The poorest groups, such as women or disabled people, often miss out on water and sanitation services and hygiene promotion, affecting their health and prospects and marginalising them even further.
Water, sanitation and hygiene services should benefit everybody. For instance, latrines should be accessible for wheelchair users and menstrual hygiene education should be available for all women and girls.
We work with local partners to reach the poorest and most marginalised people, and call on governments to provide these solutions for everyone everywhere.
We believe it is only governments who can create an environment where public and private investments and civil society can all operate effectively.
We work with them to develop national strategies, based on strong governance, financial and technical systems, to reach all of their citizens with sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene services.
