Join the online debate on WASH in Schools

From 7 April to 6 May 2011 IRC and UNICEF are organising a web-based debate on four topics around what we can do to improve water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in schools in the developing world. Right now less than half of all primary schools have access to safe water and just over a third have adequate sanitation in countries where data are available.

Outcomes of this discussion will feed into a European Call for Action on WASH in Schools that is scheduled on 24 and 25 May in The Hague. The international Call to Action for WASH in Schools campaign was launched in 2010 calling on decision-makers to increase investments and on concerned stakeholders to plan and act in cooperation, so that all children go to a school with child-friendly water, sanitation and hygiene facilities.
