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.
