Bangladesh - Facts and Statistics

3.79 million people in Bangladesh still do not have clean water close to home.

75.4 million people in Bangladesh – that's 45% of the population .

Good hygiene behaviour is integral to keeping people clean and healthy and stopping the spread of diseases like coronavirus, yet only 1% of funding for water, sanitation and health is spent on changing hygiene habits. 68.5 million people in Bangladesh lack good hygiene at home. At WaterAid, we recognise the importance of good hygiene practice and incorporate it into all of our work.

Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene are vital for living a dignified, healthy life.

Statistics can look stark. 1 in 5 people on the planet doesn't have a decent toilet. 1 in 10 don't have clean water close to home.

But thanks to your incredible support, we’ve already reached millions of people in some of the toughest places in the world. We can’t stop there.

By working together, we can reach everyone, everywhere within a generation – and transform millions of more lives for good.
