USAID’s assistance has improved access to hygiene facilities, sustainable drinking water and sanitation services throughout shocks and stressors.
Reliable access to safe water and sanitation saves lives, improves livelihoods and makes communities more resilient. Investments in water security, sanitation and hygiene are critical for progress in nearly all aspects of global development. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, more people have access to safe drinking water, safely managed sanitation services, and basic hygiene services than ever before. USAID works every day with governments, other local stakeholders, and partners to make it possible to get universal access by 2030. Learn more about USAID’s results in this fact sheet.
