‘The Water, Hygiene and Sanitation Crisis: Origins, Impacts and What To Do About It: A View From a Practitioner’’.

The lack of access to clean household water, safe sanitation and hygiene practice is holding back human and economic development for billions of people.  What lies behind this widespread failure?  How can it be solved?  This lecture considers the history of WASH poverty and its epidemiological impacts.  It looks at some of the causes of “WASH poverty” and then provides an overview of some research showing ways to overcome it.
