Why Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene?

Ensuring safe drinking water, proper sanitation, and hygiene is pivotal for human health and well-being. Consumption of unsafe water can result in ailments like diarrhea, while untreated human waste can taint water sources used for drinking, farming, bathing, and more.

Inadequate sanitation contributes to the spread of diseases such as cholera, dysentery, hepatitis A, and typhoid. It also hampers Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio.

Despite considerable strides in improving access to clean water, sanitation facilities, and hygiene practices, billions still lack these essential services. A shifting climate compounded this challenge, growing population pressures on water sources, and inefficient water and sanitation management methods.

  • As per the UN’s Water for Life Decade initiative, it’s projected that by 2025, around two-thirds of the global population might be facing water-stressed circumstances. This indicates that the available water resources won’t be sufficient to meet the needs of both people and the environment in these regions. Additionally, the UN predicts that about 1.8 billion individuals will reside in regions facing absolute water scarcity, signifying that even after all viable solutions to enhance supply and manage demand are applied, the available water supply won’t meet the demand.
  • According to a 2019 United Nations report, approximately 2 billion individuals are devoid of fundamental sanitation amenities like toilets or latrines. Among them, 673 million resort to open defecation, including in street drains or bodies of water. On a global scale, at least 2 billion people rely on drinking water sources tainted by fecal contamination.
  • A 2019 United Nations fact sheet on drinking water reveals that in the least-developed countries, 22% of healthcare facilities lack water service, 21% lack sanitation service, and 22% lack waste management service.

Safe water, sanitation, and hygiene are not only essential for human health but also play a vital role in improving livelihoods, school attendance, preserving dignity, and fostering resilient communities within healthy environments.
