This report presents, for the first time, a global assessment of the extent to which health care facilities provide essential water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services. Drawing on data representing 66,101 facilities in 54 low- and middle-income countries, the report concludes that 38% of facilities lack access even to rudimentary levels of WASH. When a higher level of service is factored in, the situation deteriorates significantly. Large disparities exist within countries and among types of facilities.
