WASH is the collective term for Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene. Due to their interdependent nature, these three core issues are grouped together to represent a growing sector. UNICEF’s work in water focuses on the ability for children to access safe water, the quality of the water they can access and the journey they must take to collect it. For sanitation, UNICEF works to ensure access and use of basic toilets and ways to separate human waste from contact with people. UNICEF’s work in hygiene is aimed at nurturing good hygiene practices, especially handwashing with soap.
