Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
Good sanitation, Safe drinking water and hygiene are fundamental to the health and well-being of all humans. The World Health Organization acknowledges the important contribution of WASH to good health, livelihoods, dignity, school attendance and building resilient communities in healthy environments. WASH improvement contributes immensely to the prevention of diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and dysentery and several Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) including trachoma, schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminths. Afrobarometer estimates that almost half of people living in Africa do not have access to clean water and two-thirds have no access to infrastructure for sewage. ASOLI aims to work with communities, government agencies and developmental partners to help improve the WASH situation.
