WHO/UNICEF Report: Wash in health care facilities

According to a recent report by the World Health Organization (WHO)/United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation, and Hygiene, 9% of healthcare facilities around the world lack basic hygiene services, such as access to soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub at both points of care and at toilets.

Facilities for healthcare are crucial for preventing sickness. However, these areas can instead contribute to greater illness, extended hospital admissions, and avoidable deaths without the fundamental water, sanitation, hygiene, waste management, and cleaning (WASH) services to prevent and control infections.

3.85 billion people, including 688 million who receive treatment in facilities with no hygiene services at all, are thought to lack access to a basic hygiene service at their health care facility. In addition, 857 million people live without any access to basic water services, leaving 1.7 billion people without such a service at their healthcare facility.

The provision of high-quality healthcare depends on expanding access to hygienic facilities, as well as improving the management of medical waste and environmental cleanup.
