It is estimated that 2.2 billion people do not have an access to safely managed drinking water services while 4.2 billion people lack safely managed sanitation services. These statistics are worrying and the continued increase of unsafe hygiene practices is a health hazard to many people across the globe. The impacts of poor sanitation and hygiene practices have led to an increase in child mortality rates with more than 297,000 children under five years dying from diseases such as diarrhoea which is caused by poor, sanitation and hygiene drinking unsafe water.
Thus, effective intervention is needed to reduce the spread of such diseases which will alleviate suffering and ultimately save lives. When more people such as local emergency response workers develop a good understanding of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) strategies more lives will be saved. To help in these efforts, Humanitarian Global has worked with the world’s best WASH specialists to develop a comprehensive online diploma programme in WASH that will help participants to acquire enhanced knowledge and expertise in this practice area.
