WASH in Healthcare Facilities

Requesting support from our donors

Location: all regions WEFTA serves

One in four healthcare facilities around the world lacks basic water services, impacting over 2 billion people, according to the 2019 report by WHO and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (JMP). It also finds that one in five healthcare facilities has no sanitation service, impacting 1.5 billion people.

WEFTA collaborates with strategic partners to evaluate healthcare facilities (HCFs) that lack access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) resources, primarily water supply and wastewater treatment. There is a critical need for WASH resources in healthcare facilities throughout all regions WEFTA serves.

A donation to this program will help with identification, evaluation, and implementation of WASH projects for healthcare facilities.  

WEFTA currently has WASH in HCF projects in motion in Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Mexico.

Sanitation & Environment

WEFTA engineers help communities make sound decisions and facilitate the dialog leading to the development of solutions for inadequate sewage treatment, and its associated environmental impacts. 

Development & Sustainability 

WEFTA volunteers work with the communities we partner with to develop the local skills needed to maintain and manage the water and wastewater systems constructed.
