22 Mar 2021

Ending the neglect to attain the sustainable development goals. A Global Strategy on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene to Combat Neglected Tropical Diseases 2021–2030

The Strategy supports the achievement of the targets of the 2021-2030 road map on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). It sets out the critical role of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for prevention, care and management of NTDs, and the actions needed to ensure that WASH efforts result in improved and sustained health and wellbeing outcomes. The Strategy builds upon collaborations between the WASH and NTD sectors over the past decade and calls for strengthened partnerships to improve access to WASH among populations at highest risk of diseases of poverty.
