Just published: Progress on drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene in schools: 2000-2021 data update

Dear friends,

UNICEF and WHO just just published: Progress on drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene in schools: 2000-2021 data update . Despite a steady decline in the proportion of schools without basic water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services, deep inequalities persist between and within countries, Schoolchildren in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and fragile contexts are the most affected, and emerging data shows that few schools have disability-accessible WASH services.

The link above takes you to the report, and more facts and analysis can be found here:  https://www.who.int/news/item/23-06-2022-schools-ill-equipped-to-provide-healthy-and-inclusive-learning-environments-for-all-children---unicef--who

Regards,

Dave

This is an interesting article looking at the accessibility and inclusiveness of children in terms of WASH. The disability-accessible WASH Services, especially during disasters and public health emergencies are of utmost importance. Even after continous thrust on the inclusiveness of accessible WASH spaces in the past many years, the developing countries are still struggling to develop their schools in that manner. Connection between WASH facilities, nutrition and education of school children are of utmost importance and need an increased amount of attention.
