The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is at the heart of a global movement to improve sanitation and hygiene for everyone. WSSCC is the only part of the United Nations devoted solely to the sanitation and hygiene needs of the most vulnerable people around the world. Through a collaborative approach which has spanned 25 years, WSSCC has harnessed the energy and expertise of communities, NGOs, governments, international organizations and the private sector. Together with thousands of members in 150 countries, the Geneva-based Secretariat advocates for change and facilitates local solutions for the millions of people who lack access to good sanitation and hygiene.

In developing countries, WSSCC support national coalitions working to accelerate action on sanitation, hygiene, and safe water among all actors. WSSCC work directly with government agencies to strengthen national sanitation programs, and we help ensure that government policies promote equal access to sanitation for women, girls, and marginalized groups. In the global arena, our cutting-edge awareness campaigns and policy analysis help make the case for community-led sanitation and hygiene as a top development priority.

Through the Global Sanitation Fund (http://wsscc.org/global-sanitation-fund/) – the world’s first and only fund dedicated to improving sanitation and hygiene – WSSCC provide vital funding for community-based, publicly-supported and commercially-operated programmes, reaching millions of people. The Global Sanitation Fund empowers people to make informed decisions to change their sanitation and hygiene situation, and therefore choosing a healthier and more productive life for themselves and their children.

Core to WSSCC’s mandate are equality and non-discrimination. WSSCC programmes and partnerships address gender inequality, disability and social exclusion in the WASH sector, and beyond. Specific attention goes to the needs of women and adolescent girls. Menstrual hygiene management is a key part of our portfolio, aiming at breaking the taboo around menstruation globally while ensuring change in national policies.

WSSCC Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene
The aim of the WSSCC led Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene in Developing Countries is to reinforce the global community of those working in sanitation and hygiene and create a neutral platform to share and learn together.

The group is managed by a coordinator who currently sits within the WSSCC Secretariat in Geneva. The coordinator works with a global team of 'stewards' who are dedicated and well respected sector professionals. The Stewards are responsible for the strategic decisions for the CoP and each one brings different opportunities, networks and geographical representation to the table.
