British Medical Journal is working with WaterAid to help bring clean water and good sanitation to thousands around the world.

Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene should be normal for everyone, everywhere. But, today, millions of people have their access denied, simply because of who they are, how much money they have, or where they live.

Being denied this human right stops people having an equal chance to be healthy, educated and financially secure. This locks in inequality and stops change happening.

Nearly half of health centres in the world’s poorest countries, and one in four globally, do not have clean water. One in five globally do not have decent sanitation.

Doctors and nurses often spend hours each day walking to wells, and are unable to wash their hands between patients or provide a clean environment in which to have treatment or give birth. 

This winter, our goal is to raise £2 million for our work to improve access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene behaviour in health centres, schools and communities around the world. 

With the support of people like you, this can be a reality.
