Summary

This document summarizes the evidence and information related to water and health in a broad sense- encompassing drinking-water supply, sanitation, hygiene, and the development and management of water resources. The report collects the ingredients that support policy decisions, namely the disease burden at stake, the effectiveness of interventions, their costs and impacts, and implications for financing. It presents an overview of current knowledge on the health impacts by country and by disease, and of what has worked to reduce that burden.
